A CMS for reading and writing stories in a online magazine format.
This repository powers an online magazine where regular people contribute sincere and honest nonfiction stories. It basically contains a fully-fledged CMS (content-management system) with passwordless authentication. I needed something similar to Wordpress and Ghost, but I wanted more control in the layout and the interface so I decided to write it myself.
anonfiction is written in Go with the Gin web framework and the CSS framework is in Tachyon. The database uses BoltDB via @asdine's storm interface and my simple schollz/jsonstore. All changes to every story are saved via schollz/versionedtext. The built-in editor comes from basecamp/trix.
Please fork this project, steal ideas from it, contribute to it, love it, or hate it.
I decided to make an effort to make a place on the Internet that is more positive and reflective. This place would be where you can present your own story, anonymously and sincerely. A place where you don't have to be an MFA to present a good story. I wrote a blog post with more of my reasoning.
First install the dependencies using Go:
go get -u -v github.com/schollz/anonfiction
cd into the
$GOPATH and build:
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/schollz/anonfiction go build ./anonfiction
The passwordless login requires an email server in production, but it is disabled by default (so anyone can login to anything). If you'd like to use it, I suggest getting mailgun.
