Welcome to Filo

Filo is a simple application to store links to stuff on the web that you want to read later. Yes, it's been heavily inspired by Instapaper, and I wrote the version just a few weeks after Instapaper's launch as a means to investigate a few alternatives in shaping the user experience.

Recently I decided to rewrote the application and move it to Heroku. You can find the current version at:

http://filo.bzaar.net

While at it, I also thought to open source it, so here it is.

Things you may find interesting here:

  • fully localized, using Rails i18n framework
  • iPhone interface, powered by jqTouch
  • Heroku ready
  • uses Devise for authentication.
  • Cucumber stories covering a good deal of the application's features.

Getting started on Heroku

These are the steps if you want to install your own copy of Filo in the cloud:

$ git clone http://github.com/bru/filo.git
$ cd filo
$ heroku create
$ git push heroku master
$ heroku rake db:migrate

TODO

  • a lot. I have plenty of stories left in the icebox. Look this space for changes. On the other hand, feel free to fork and creovate.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
