What is it? =========== Typo is a weblog system written in Ruby using Ruby on Rails. Weblogs are cool, weblogs are "in" and everyone who writes code has a different opinion on how a weblog should be written. Typo is our take on it. Typo is designed to be usable by programmers and non-programmers, while being easy for programmers to extend. Requirements ============ Currently you need all of those things to get typo to run: * Ruby 1.8.6 or Ruby Enterprise Edition. * Rails 2.2, Typo 5.3 DOES NOT support Rails 2.1. * A database. Typo supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. * Ruby drivers for your database. * For best performance, you should have a web server running either Apache, Lighttpd or Nginx, along with FastCGI, mongrel or thin. You can use Ruby's built-in web server for low-volume testing. We recommend the use of Apache + mod_rails (aka Passenger) for fast and easy deployment along with speed. * rspec, rcov and ruby-debug are necessary to run the test suit. Installation ============ See doc/Installer.txt and doc/typo-5.3-release-notes.txt. Usage ====== Typo's administrative interface is available at http://your.domain.com/admin. You can use this to post articles and change Typo's configuration settings. For posting new content, you can either use this administrative web interface or a desktop blog editor like MarsEdit or Ecto. For a short list of clients which are confirmed to work please visit http://typosphere.org/wiki/DesktopClients. Client setup ============ Set your desktop client to Movable Type API and enter http://your.domain.com/backend/xmlrpc as endpoint address. Enjoy, Your typo team
