Diary is an open-source tent application designed to manage and edit Essay posts (long-form text). Those can later be consumed by any app supporting this post type. This includes Reevio: an Essay-based bloging app.
First things first, let's install a few dependencies for Diary to run properly. Feel free to ignore this part if you already have node, npm and coffee on your machine.
The following instructions will guide you throughout the installation procedure on Ubuntu.
NodeJS + NPM
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y python-software-properties python g++ make sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nodejs
CoffeeScript, we'll use NPM to install this one.
sudo npm install -g coffee-script
We're now ready to download and run Diary itself.
Retrieve the Diary source code from GitHub.
git clone https://github.com/BenjBouv/diary.git
Move into the folder that you just cloned the source in, and run the following command to install all the necessary NPM packages.
sudo npm install
Rename the sample config file
config.coffee. The default port for diary to run on is 1337, but feel free to edit this config file to change this setting.
mv config.coffee.example config.coffee
Everything's now ready for us to run the app.
