In my recent RailsConf talk I said that I would help out with questions regarding component-based Rails applications (#cobra). A few days ago I got one such question via twitter: How to make a unified admin tool for independent engines?. Here is the gist:
Zac: @shageman starting an app from scratch using #cbra and wondering how to handle a shared admin tool w/ regards to non-shared dependencies
Stephan: @zachallett Are you wanting to build one admin for multiple independent parts?
Zac: @shageman that was my thought, I would like to mount subdomains as engines, and have a unified admin tool for the independent subdomain apps
Stephan: @zachallett Basically, you have two options: make one admin(engine) per engine or extract admirable stuff and have one admin engine.
This post adds detail to my answer on twitter.
