BlueInk began in late 2005 from ideas gathered from previous projects, problems, and paper sketches. Over the years it grew into a unique and powerful CMS.

Using the current commercial Software-as-a-Service BlueInk CMS as the conceptual prototype, BlueInk is being rewritten into an Open Source CMS built on Apache CouchDB and Cloudant mostly as a CouchApp.


It's a bit rough in here still...but improving!

  1. copy config.json.sample to config.json
  2. update it with your settings
  3. npm install
  4. gulp
  5. visit the URL you stored in 1config.jsonsans login info and plus /_design/blueink/_rewrite/`

That should load the home (see home.json) page.

The site contents (content, templates, schemas, the whole shootin' match) lives in _docs. The BlueInk editing UI and CouchDB views live in _design/blueink.
