I'd like to see a fork Ghost as a Rails app. Anyone game?



You know, IIRC the first Rails demo actually used building a blog app as example. 8 years later and still no one has come up with a real Wordpress/Drupal/Mediawiki alternative - or at least none that's gained any significant userbase. I often wonder why..

The problem is that Wordpress is vehemently anti-MVC, and its plugin structure depends on this. You'd have to design an entirely different system to work on Rails.

Will be all over this should things go ahead.

keen to learn rails - maybe Ghost will be a fun little project
