ActiveBlog is a work in progress.

ActiveBlog is Rails engine written to satisfy minimal blogging requirements.

The ActiveBlog BlogPost model:

create_table :blog_posts do |t|
  t.string :title
  t.string :body
  t.boolean :draft
  t.datetime :published_at
  t.string :cached_slug
  t.string :custom_url

  t.timestamps
end

It is by no means a full blogging engine. There are no categories, no comments, and certainly no tagging.

ActiveBlog has the following dependencies:

  • ActiveAdmin, for the backend
  • Devise, for admin authentication
  • Redcarpet, for markdown rendering
  • PostgreSQL, for storage

How to install ActiveBlog

  • Document Parent App Hooks (content_for :sidebar, content_for :title, content_for: head)
  • Missing ActiveAdmin UI tests.
