DESCRIPTION

ro is library for managing your site's content in git, as god intended.

it features:

  • super fast loading via a robust caching/promise strategy
  • all teh templates supported via tilt (https://github.com/rtomayko/tilt)
  • the awesomest markdown ever, with syntax highlighting and even erb evaluation
  • an awesome command line tool for introspecting your data (./ro console)
  • data driven relationships

ro is the perfect companion to a site built by a static site generator such as middleman (http://middlemanapp.com/). especially a middleman site with a companion rails' application doing concurrent modifications of the site's content... (ref: http://dojo4.com/blog/static-is-the-new-black) ;-)

INSTALL

gem install ro

CONFIG

if you are using the url methods you'll need to make sure your application can route to the assets. by default ro assumes that the urls it generates are routeable under '/ro' so it is up to you to make sure this works.

for a rails app this might mean writing a 'RoController' or, more simply, just putting your ro data in ./public/ro.

for a middleman app this might mean putting your ro data in ./source/ro.

if you choose a non-standard approach you'll need to


  Ro.route = '/my-custom-route'


in all cases ro urls will be prefixed by the route, so be sure that this prefix is either automatically, or manually, exposed.
