Now defunct, Bort was a working base app we built to provide us with a platform from which we could quickly develop web apps.

Bort includes signup and authentication, user roles, OpenID, rspec, asset packaging and an exception notifier. Bort has since been superseded by another base application, which has remained private as other, better base apps are now available.

Bort gained some notoriety in 2008, and was mentioned in the Rails Envy podcast.
