Clovrr

I wanted a blogging app, so I made one. This is the in-development app. It uses Rails and MongoDB to make sweet, sweet blogging happen. Put your hands in the correct position and get ready.

Features in/planned for v1

  • Markdown-based text posting
  • Link posts (to external sites)
  • Archive listing of posts
  • Theme support
  • An API for exporting of posts

Requirements for usage

  • Ruby MRI 1.9.2 or its equivalent
  • A server that can server Rails apps
  • MongoDB
  • A brain

Installing

Clovrr was sort of designed to work on Heroku, but it could be installed most anywhere Rails 3 apps work otherwise.

Anyway, here's the Heroku Way.

  1. Clone this repo (git clone git://github.com/evanwalsh/clovrr.git) or download its source code.
  2. Install the Heroku gem (gem install heroku)
  3. Make a new app on Heroku: heroku create YOUR_APP_NAME --stack bamboo-mri-1.9.2
  4. Modify config/mongoid.yml if necessary (Clovrr will automatically work with Heroku and MongoHQ)
  5. (OPTIONAL) Modify db/seeds.rb
  6. git push heroku master
  7. heroku rake app:install

HEY BRO, YOU'RE DONE. WORD UP.

The future?

  • A bookmarklet for posting
  • Attachments to posts (that upload to S3)
  • Location tagging of posts

Contributing

Shamelessly stolen from the Twitter gem's readme.

In the spirit of free software, everyone is encouraged to help improve this project.

Here are some ways you can contribute:

  • by using the in-development version
  • by reporting bugs
  • by suggesting new features
  • by writing or editing documentation
  • by writing specifications
  • by writing code (no patch is too small: fix typos, add comments, clean up inconsistent whitespace)
  • by refactoring code
  • by closing issues
  • by reviewing patches

All contributors will be added to the README file and will receive the respect and gratitude of the community.
