    Is there a specific reason the CMS has to be built on Rails?

    Personally I've found Wordpress to be a great solution for your requirements. The JSON API plugin is nice, there is also a good User API available. With minimal config you can create complex content models, and an editing environment thats easy for the rest of your team (marketing people are usually familiar w/ Wordpress).

    With these plugins you'll be off running: JSON REST API WP Admin UI Customize Types

    Personally I also like to use: Simple Post Order Advanced Custom Fields ACF Repeater ACF Image Crop

    I'm curious if anyone has a compelling reason against using Wordpress for prototyping or small/mid size projects. Especially when you can avoid frontend bloat with an intelligent functions.php or completely decoupling the frontend via something like Angular
