About Gluttonberg CMS

Gluttonberg is an Open Source Ruby on Rails CMS developed by the team at Freerange Future. As designers and developers, we love the flexibility of Rails, but got tired of taking care of authentication, asset management, page management (and so on...) with every project. We created Gluttonberg to take care of that boring stuff so we could build bigger and better things.

Gluttonberg was originally built with Merb back in 2008. Whoops. When Rails 3 finally launched, we ported it over. With the new version of Gluttonberg, we’ve put a lot of effort into improving the architecture, code quality and test coverage.

If you want to spend more time on the fun stuff, why not try Gluttonberg today and see what it can do for you?
