Eribium Asset Manager

September 28th, 2006

I’ve uploaded a screenshot of the new theme manager for eribium. Some new features include online editing of themes (wordpress style) and one-click download and installation of themes. I have a central repository of themes for eribium, which designers can upload their themes to. Themes can then be installed with one click, from inside the admin interface (none of this wordpress copying and pasting theme folders).

    Would it be possible to make the source available? I don’t see a line of source under the RubyForge project. Apologies if I’ve just missed it.

    I’m about 90% of the way toward adopting RailFrog as my CMS of choice, not because the existing product is better (it’s not), but because they seem to be more serious about developing a community around the project of building and maintaining a CMS. So far Eribium just looks like one hacker having some fun. Hope I’m misreading the situation, but regardless, the Eribium and RailFrog communities should work together to define a common plugin architecture.

    Hey Philip, if you read the other posts you’d know that a new version of eribium will be out soon - so the source isn’t available yet - but will be soon :). I think that developing a plugin architecture round eribium is really important - considering that attributed greatly to wordpress’s success. You’re completely right about the fact that Eribium is just about one hacker having fun. The directions I’ve gone into haven’t exactly been typically open source, but rather motivated by my own interests. However I definitely am keen to get a community up and running around Eribium, after this release. After all, there’s strength in numbers and I’m sure Eribium can’t mature without other designers, developers and translators. However at the moment Eribium is in its infancy and subject to quite radical changes, for example the move from HTML/JavaScript to Flex.

    I’ve been through the process of researching various CMS’es out there and I tend to find them either too powerful or not powerful enough, or not flexible to suit the ideas I have… and if not enough… too cumbersome to get them up to the level at which I’d want/need.

    I’m not a coder by any means, but I can tell you that after having worked on a Nuke-based site I hate it, yet I struggle trying to find something that has the features that we need for our online racing site. I’ve no experience in Ruby, nor have I messed with Rails, but when I saw someone mentioning recently about the argument of whether to use a CMS (i.e. Drupal) vs. roll his own in RoR, it got me thinking to look at what CMS’es were out there.

    I have to admit that I’m verrrrry impressed with both Eribium and Aireo thus far. I think it could be 2 core features to our site’s eventual future. Granted, I’m also looking for a board integration at somepoint as well (like SMF but it’s not Ruby nor Web 2.0, might not quite match the workings of Eribium) for the site and thus far… Joomla + SMF might be a better choice for us even with some of the sacrifices we’d have to make. I definitely look on to Eribium and Aireo with great interest though, and want to commend you on an awesome project. Keep plugging away!
