wicker

Blogging software which is intended to replace the sofware used on intertwingly.

Current status: work in progress.

Build Status

Prerequisites:

Installation instructions:

  • git clone https://github.com/rubys/wicker.git
  • cd wicker
  • rake
  • RACK_ENV=test rackup

The rake command will build test data and run acceptance tests. The rackup command will run a web server with this test data.

Design Goals

  • Clean, uniformly indented, markup for all generated HTML and Atom feeds.
  • Run on everything from lynx to evergreen browsers.
  • Direct use of modern JavaScript APIs (as opposed to the current software used on intertwingly builds on JQuery). This means that users of backlevel browsers may sometimes see the fallback behavior.
  • Switch from a custom MoinMoin inspired comment syntax to a MarkDown comment syntax.
