Starting your own blog isn't an easy task. If you've ever started one, you know how hard it is to stay focused. With ecrire, you have all the tools you need to help you get started.
The interface is light and the editor is at the forefront. Because writing, that's what we do.
Don't worry about saving your drafts, Ecrire does it for you every half a second. We're in 2014, after all.
Ecrire is built on top of Ruby on Rails, that means that every theme you build can be built with ruby helpers and decorators while having the power to write clean HTML. Your views can be neatly organized and clean.
Go ahead, try it out!
First, you need to have ruby version higher than 2.0.0.
You can install the gem with rubygems.
