Linkable posts for Nesta CMS

This plugin makes it simple to do Daring Fireball style posts for remote links in Nesta. Simply add the url to your article metadata:

date: 2011-09-22 11:34:07 -0500
categories: linked
slug: making-blogazine-with-nesta

# Making a blogazine with NestaCMS



To install add the plugin to your Nesta Gemfile

In your views, be sure to use the url_for helper to link to the remote URL as needed in pages:

- if @page.is_linked?
  %a.permalink{:href => url_for(@page)}

... or by default in your atom feed:

- @articles.each do |article|
    %title= article.heading
    %link{ :href => url_for(article), :type => 'text/html', :rel => 'alternate' }
    %id= atom_id(article)

The plugin works nicely with the Sluggable which allows you to add descriptive slugs to your link post URLs.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
