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

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:
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.
- 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
publicfolder. For example:
ln -s ~/myapp/assets/ assets
In html file:
<link href="/assets/css/theme.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" >
