Nesta - a CMS for Ruby Developers

Build Status

A CMS for small web sites and blogs, written in Sinatra.

Content can be written in Markdown or Textile and stored in text files (though you can also use Haml if you need to add some HTML to your pages). There's no database; write your content in your editor. Publish by pushing to a git repository.

Installation

Begin by installing the gem:

$ gem install nesta

Then use the nesta command to generate a new site:

$ nesta new mysite.com --git

Install a few dependencies, and you're away:

$ cd mysite.com
$ bundle

You'll find basic configuration options for your site in config/config.yml. The defaults will work, but you'll want to tweak it before you go very far.

That's it - you can launch a local web server in development mode using shotgun...

$ bundle exec shotgun config.ru

...then point your web browser at http://localhost:9393. Start editing the files in content/pages (see the Writing content docs for full instructions).
