Is there any recommendable modern CMS (-engine) for Ruby on Rails?

It should not be some 'external' or API-CMS like Contentful but rather something that's fully integrated but still has a modern backend.

It seems that Alchemy CMS, Spina, Camaleon, Fae CMS, Publify, Locomotive CMS (is it worth to have MongoDB as a dependency?), Comfortable Mexican Sofa and Casein are actively developed at the moment. But are they good? I didn't try any of them.

I also found pavecms.com which seems to have a WYSIWYG backend but the company wasn't responsive via the contact form and I didn't find anything about licensing/pricing anyway.

Does anyone has experience and advice?

What are good factors to watch out when looking for a CMS engine?

  • I've looked for an CMS for rails to and the ones you mention are in my opinion outdated or very minimal. I don't think people spend much time on building an good CMS in rails because when you say CMS I think the most people will think about wordpress. If you want a good CMS in rails I would say build your own. – Hackman Jul 12 '19 at 22:49
  • I choosed Alchemy CMS. I don't like the backend UI, but other than that it is really good. The architecture is well designed and I would go for it again. – Wurstsalat Jul 14 '19 at 11:39
