Welcome to Dante Stories - a Self hosted Medium like solution

Build Status

Maintainability

This project is a fork of a Medium clone which began as Ken Hibino's personal side project to learn Ruby on Rails and ReactJS. I've upgraded and refactored some part of the rails app and I've integrated Dante2 wysiwyg editor.

The specific improvements from the original repository:

Platform

  • Rails 5.2.1 update!
  • Removed elastisearch-rails , replaced by searchkick
  • Removed carrierwave, replaced by activestorge
  • Webpacker added
  • Updated dependencies
  • Replaced phantomJs by chrome-webdriver
  • Ruby version 2.4.0
  • Works with Elasticsearch 6.3.X

Application Model

  • multiple image support
  • Oembed support
  • A better wysiwyg With Dante2 Draftjs
    • Code blocks with language formatting via Prism-js
    • A video record component to build posts with recorded video
    • Database saves a serialized representation of text
    • And much much more
  • Automatic title detection
  • Lead Text is automatic too. more performant approach , I think
  • Responses are unified as a Post model, so Response model is removed
