Organews

Dependency Status Build Status Coverage Status Code Climate

This project includes

  • a grape api server for an angular front-end.
  • a static pages generator
  • a mailchimp publication runner
    • includes a limited cli. If you need a fully functionnal cli tool for mailchimp control checkout the mc gem

The need for Organews comes from the newsletter publication Green Ruby http://greenruby.org where the information management follows a specific set of constraints:

  • there are modifications made by only one editor
  • modifications are made once a week
  • the html newsletter is sent via mailchimp
  • a website keeps track of the archives
  • the archives have to be searchable by article, tag, title, etc.

Currently the Greeen Ruby publication had one year of existence and 1300 links publiched, each with a small set of metadata. So the choice is to use an in-memory database, load everything at api server start. This is of course not a scalable choice but for the start it will do it. The use of the sequel gem anyways permits evolution later on.

Organews is designed to be used by https://github.com/greenruby/grn-static which holds all the content.
