Readme.textile

This is the source code that powers the old toolmantim.com. It’s a Sinatra application serving up haml-based articles from disk.

The idea was that you want publishing to be previewable, simple and versioned. You want to be able to tweak the appearance of your site as you produce more complex articles. You want to simply add an image to your site, not build a whole admin providing file uploads. The major downside (if it is indeed at all a downside) is to publish you need access to your repo so you can git commit and cap deploy, though I could imagine using github’s web editing features to add articles and trigger a site update w/o touching a terminal.

License

Now that this is the old version of toolmantim.com everything (except the logo) is MIT licensed, layout, photoshop and all. Go wild!

The only file that you’re not allowed to use is the logo. That might confuse people.
