Monologue

Gem Version Build Status Code Climate Coverage Status

THIS README IS FOR THE MASTER BRANCH AND REFLECTS THE WORK CURRENTLY EXISTING ON THE MASTER BRANCH. IF YOU ARE WISHING TO USE A NON-MASTER BRANCH OF MONOLOGUE, PLEASE CONSULT THAT BRANCH'S README AND NOT THIS ONE.

Monologue is a basic, mountable blogging engine in Rails built to be easily mounted in an already existing Rails app, but it can also be used alone.

Version

This README is for a future Monologue version, that will be 0.4.X and be Rails 4 specific. See other branches for other versions (0-3-stable being the latest stable version).

Upgrade and changes

To learn how to upgrade, see UPGRADE.md file. If you want to learn what changed since the last versions, see CHANGELOG.md.

Installation

1. Add the gem to your Gemfile.

gem 'monologue'

And run bundle install to fetch the gem and update your 'Gemfile.lock'.

2. Route to Monologue

Add this to your route file (config/route.rb)

# This line mounts Monologue's routes at the root of your application.
# This means, any requests to URLs such as /my-post, will go to Monologue::PostsController.
# If you would like to change where this engine is mounted, simply change the :at option to something different.
#
# We ask that you don't use the :as option here, as Monologue relies on it being the default of "monologue"
mount Monologue::Engine, at: '/' # or whatever path, be it "/blog" or "/monologue"

For example, if you decide to mount it at /blog, the admin section will be available at /blog/monologue. Here we decide to use monologue as default route mounting it at /, it means that the admin section will directly be available at /monologue.

3. Migrate Monologue's database tables

Run these commands:

  1. $bin/rake monologue:install:migrations
  2. $bin/rake db:create (only if this is a new project)
  3. $bin/rake db:migrate

4. Create a user

Open your development console with bin/rails c, then:

Monologue::User.create(name: "monologue", email:"monologue@example.com", password:"my-password", password_confirmation: "my-password")

5. Configure Monologue.

This is all done in an initializer file, typically config/initializers/monologue.rb. More on this in the Wiki - Configuration.

6. Ready

Start your server and go to http://localhost:3000/monologue to log in the admin section.

Note to users

Monologue is using its own tables. If you want to use your own tables with monologue (for example the User table) this might help you to monkey patch.

Customization

See the Wiki - Customizations.

Requirements

  • Rails 4.0.4 +
  • Database: MySQL & Postgres are supported but other databases might work too.
