Content Management Rails Kit

Easily create a members-only content site.

Would you like to quickly create a content management system that has areas restricted to only be viewable to paying customers? Do you want to avoid having to write the recurring billing and account management code yourself?

The CMS Rails Kit gets your new content site up and running quickly by combining the proven and well-tested billing code from the SaaS Rails Kit with the extendable Radiant open source content management system. If you want to create a premium content web site using Ruby on Rails, the CMS Rails Kit is for you.

Provided as a Radiant extension, this Kit can be easily added to a Radiant-based site without requiring any code to be written. After adding this extension to a Radiant site, you’ll have a way to restrict pages to only paying customers, and even set up tiered levels of access, if desired. With this Kit you’ll add customer self-signup/self-service, payment gateway integration, and automated billing to your content site.

Supported gateways:

PayPal billing agreements (reference transactions) are also supported, so all you need is a PayPal Website Payments Standard business account to get started. Please note that collecting credit card info via a PayPal Website Payments Pro account is not currently supported. If you want to offer both PayPal and credit card payment options, you’ll need to use one of the supported gateways listed above.
