Nesta - a CMS for Ruby Developers
A CMS for small web sites and blogs, written in Sinatra.
Content can be written in Markdown or Textile and stored in text files (though you can also use Haml if you need to add some HTML to your pages). There's no database; write your content in your editor. Publish by pushing to a git repository.
Begin by cloning the git repository:
$ git clone git://github.com/gma/nesta.git
Nesta's dependencies are managed with bundler, which handles installing the necessary gems for you:
$ gem install bundler $ cd nesta $ bundle install
You'll need a config file. You can start with the default and tweak it to suit later:
$ cp config/config.yml.sample config/config.yml
Create some sample web pages (optional):
$ bundle exec rake setup:sample_content
That's it - you can launch a local web server in development mode using shotgun...
$ bundle exec shotgun app.rb
...then point your web browser at http://localhost:9393. Start editing the
nesta/content, and you're on your way.
