Plotline Demo Blog
This is a demo Rails app for Plotline
Feel free to clone the repo and base your own blog/website on it.
First of all, you'll have to create a directory for your content. I store mine on Dropbox, so that it can be easily synced to my server. For development, though, dropbox is not required. You can start with a very basic structure:
mkdir blog-content cd blog-content mkdir media posts pages drafts echo "---\ntitle: Hello world\ntype: post\n---\n\nThis is my first blog post\n" > posts/"$(date +'%Y-%m-%d')"-hello-world.md
In order to run the app, you'll need: postgres, python and homebrew (mac). Once you have that, the following script will install fswatch/inotify-tools required for monitoring changes in the content directory.
git clone email@example.com:pch/plotline-demo-blog.git cd plotline-demo-blog bin/setup
The script will ask you to provide the location of your content directory
- simply paste the absolute path of the
blog-contentdirectory created above.
Once it's set up, modify the
--source directory path in
Procfile and run:
