Blogging plugin provided as a rails engine


  • A rails 3.0.x app
  • Postgres database


Add bumble to your Gemfile:

gem 'bumble'

and update your bundle:

$ bundle install

Then you can add the migrations and assets to your project with the following generators:

$ rails generate bumble:migrations
$ rails generate bumble:assets

The last step is then to run those new migrations:

rake db:migrate


You can mount the blog in a particular route (the default is /posts) by putting the following in your config/routes.rb in your application:

match '/blog', :to => 'posts#index'

To make the blog your homepage use:

root :to => 'posts#index'

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
