Hydra

https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/hydra/The+Hydra+Project

Hydra is "an end-to-end, flexible, extensible, workflow-driven, Fedora application kit" and "provides a toolkit of reusable components that can be combined and configured in different arrays to meet a diversity of content management needs".

The Hydra stack includes Fedora, Solr, Blacklight, and plugins for integration. Blacklight and some of the plugins are built on top of the ruby-on-rails framework.
