So I went after blogging engines. If you ask me why I didn't scaffold it with Rails I'm gonna blow your head. My requirements were that it needed to be easy to style so I could make it look pretty, that it was filesystem based so I could manage it with git, and that it was markdown. [The Ruby Toolbox](https://www.ruby-toolbox.com/) has listed a bunch of Ruby engines in it's [Blog Engine](https://www.ruby-toolbox.com/categories/Blog_Engines), no wonder! And couldn't find much more than that at the webz.
-I won't go in detail in any of them. But it is worth mention in case you want to learn more about it. [Jekyll](http://jekyllrb.com/) looked pretty cool, but I didn't want to setup all the necessary infrastructure. [Octopress](http://octopress.org/), which is build on top of Jekyll, looks pretty cool! But it does too much stuff and I might have to hack it too much so it worked the way I wanted. [Toto](http://cloudhead.io/toto) was the best alternative. I also tried [Serious](https://github.com/colszowka/serious), which wasn't customizable out of the box. Yes! I know there are some really nice blogging tools in Javascript, I was specially interested in [wheat](https://github.com/creationix/wheat). But in the end I just wanted to build my own website and wanted something to handle the posts for me. I wanted a blog library, not an engine.

So I started building the website with Sinatra (yes! it still take less lines than any Javascript framework) and eventually ported out the engine to a gem. And [rollin](http://github.com/marano/rollin) was born!
