PORTLAND, Ore. & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FINE announced today the open-sourcing of Fae, its free Ruby on Rails CMS. Available for use on the MIT License with no contract, Fae makes it easy for Rails developers to build dynamic, highly customized websites and applications for any industry.
“Over the years, we’ve built an exceptionally flexible CMS that lets us create unconstrained online brand presences for our clients,” said Steve Fine, FINE principal. “We are now excited to bring this technology to the developer community to streamline their work and support the further evolution of the Fae engine.”
Unlike rigid, proprietary CMS engines, Fae provides a highly scalable framework that lets developers design front to back with almost no initial coding. Fae provides all the basics needed to get up and running fast, including authentication and authorization, a sleek UI, form helpers, and workflows. In addition, Fae allows custom front-end interfaces to easily connect with any data structure managed by the CMS.
“With most CMS engines, it is very difficult to customize or scale a solution. Fae helps us eliminate these problems,” said James Kurczodyna, Director of Technology at FINE. “We are committed to investing the time needed to continue making Fae a valuable, high-quality resource for the open-source community.”
Thoroughly production tested, Fae already serves as the foundation for a broad spectrum of name-brand websites and applications developed by FINE, including American Securities, Anchor Brewing, Kenwood Vineyards, PAE Engineers, The Residences at Seafire, and dozens more. Developers can visit www.faecms.com to learn how easy it is to get started with Fae. With this launch, FINE extends its client credo of “Bring Friends” to the open-source community with the goal of continually improving Fae features and functionality to the benefit of all.
