Thimblr Base

Develop tumblr themes quickly, easily, and locally.

Installation

Requirements: Runs on Ruby, uses Bundler for dependencies.

git clone https://github.com/jasonseney/thimblr-base.git
cd thimblr-base
bundle install
rackup -p 4567

Now, open your browser to http://localhost:4567 to view the theme.

Settings can be found at http://localhost:4567/settings.

Thimblr Base installs the default settings yml, theme file, and data file in your user's application settings directory (OS dependant). For example, on OS X, you can find it here:

~/Library/Application\ Support/Thimblr/

You can change where thimblr base loads the theme and data file by modifying the values in settings.yml. This is very helpful if you store your themes in a repository elsewhere on your computer.

Tips:

  • This is a "Rack Application" and can easily run on Pow
  • If you have asset files (css/js/etc), it can be useful to sym link their root folder to the applications public folder. For example:
    cd public
    ln -s ~/myapp/assets/ assets
    In html file: <link href="/assets/css/theme.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" >
  • See this comment for using Appearance Options
