CrowdBlog

CI: Build Status

Code Climate: Code Climate

Generic Blog engine, currently in use by blog.crowdint.com and crowdint.com/careers, among others.

Installation

Gemfile

gem 'crowdblog'

Bundle

bundle install

Copy migrations

rake crowdblog:install:migrations

Run them

rake db:migrate

Mount

#
# routes.rb
#

mount Crowdblog::Engine => '/blog_admin'

Enjoy.

Your Rails App should implement the "client facing" pages. Read posts from the Crowdblog::Post model.

Authentication

The gem includes a very basic Devise implementation. We use it in combination with this gem to authenticate via our Google Apps accounts.

Take a look at this code as an implementation example.

Testing: Use with caution

If you are using it as a 'vanilla' installation, that is, without a lot of customizations, you can use some specs that are included with the gem to make sure your blog behaves properly.

Add this on your spec_helper, right after you require rspec/rails:

require 'crowdblog/rspec'
require 'database_cleaner'

Your are going to need DatabaseCleaner to use truncation strategies for your data. Add these lines to spec_helper.rb:

Rspec.configure do |config|

  config.use_transactional_fixtures = false

  config.before(:suite) do
    DatabaseCleaner.strategy = :truncation
    DatabaseCleaner.clean_with(:truncation)
  end

  config.before(:each) do
    DatabaseCleaner.start
  end

  config.after(:each) do
    DatabaseCleaner.clean
  end
end

Now, create a crowdblog spec:

#
# spec/integration/crowdblog_spec.rb
#
require 'spec_helper'

describe "Crowdblog" do
  it_behaves_like "a crowdblog"
end

And run your specs. It should test Crowdblog properly.
