Introduction

This is a lightweight blogging platform built on Ruby on Rails. This application is really really lightweight and it does not do a lot of things.

Features

  • Only one user is supported.

  • Only way to login is to have an openid account.

  • Only Redcloth is supported.

  • no support for trackback.

  • Comment spam is handled by not storing the email address of the comment author. In the last 18 months I have not received a single spam using this mechanism. It works.

  • Tag an article.

HOW TO

  • Login: Got to www.domain.com/blog/login

  • Edit a blog: Login first. Then go to the url of the blog. At the top of the url add '/edit' and then submit this url.
