Revel example blogging application. This requires a mongo db server, the defaults are detailed below. See the documentation for revmgo for more additional configuration options.

This is meant to be an example blogging application for the awesome revel framework See the related discussion in the revel framework users group.

Example users and content

Bloggo ships with two default user accounts and a few articles. You can log in as either 'Jane Doe' or 'John Doe' by using or respectively with the password 12341234 for either user account.



The database is configurable via the app.conf directive bloggo.db if you do not set this it will default to "bloggo"

bloggo.db = bloggo


Revel models correspond to mongo collections. By default the collection name defaults to the model name eg. Article uses the "Article" collection in mongodb. If you want to store the model data in a different collection use the following config one per model type.

bloggo.db.collection.MODEL_NAME = "COLLECTION_NAME"


bloggo.db.collection.Articles = "articles"

Admin User

The admin user can be set via app.conf, with the directive bloggo.admin default this ships with it set as 'Jane Doe' one of the default users. The value is set to the mongo _id value of the user account that should be considered as the admin account.


bloggo.admin = "51e9aa4049a1b716bb000003"
