CMS term by Alex Popescu

I have taken a quick look at some of these, and I got the impression that the term CMS was used with a very wide meaning. (f.e. ClockingIT looks like a project management solution). However, it is impressive to notice how reach this market is in languages like PHP, Python and now Ruby, as opposed to what is available in Java.

Small List of Ruby based CMS apps by Christoph Blank

Hey,

because I was very frustrated searching the web for ruby on rails based cms and publishing systems which fit my need, I made a small list, if anyone needs something like that, its maybe helpful:
www.railsbased.org

zena by Gaspard Bucher

I see that zena is not in the list, but it's definitely a very interesting product (I'm biased...).

Here's the link: zenadmin.org.

Some interesting features: live preview, very powerful templating language (ajax enabled), groups based access management, versioned content, multilingual, etc.

Great list but missing Refinery CMS by David Jones

I'm biased, but I was surprised to see RefineryCMS missing from this list.
