Gmaps4rails is developed to simply create a Google Map with overlays
(markers, infowindows…). Yet it's backed on a very flexible codebase
which could be prone to accept other map providers.
Use it with any Ruby app (I guess you could simply take the js anywhere if you like).
Here is a quick tutorial on youtube, and my presentation on speaker deck.
