Despite having a presentational video on Rails that constructs a blogging system in less than 10 minutes, Loud Thinking is still chugging along on a Moveable Type installation that is years old. An installation that does neither Textile nor run of a database for integration with other scripts. It's one of those always-on-the-todo-list kind of things.
Thankfully, not all Rails developers are as slow as me to get their weblog running on Rails. Marten and Sarah are both running a home-grown weblogging system built with Rails on Standard Behavior and One Before, respectively.
Both systems look really nice and sports pretty designs on top of it. Sarah's system even has a nice statistics section to get an overview of how the blog is doing.
Hopefully Sarah (or Marten) will get around to open sourcing of her system, so there's a base to offset my eternal procrastination in getting my blogging on Rails going.
UPDATE: John Wilger also just relaunched his blog ThatWebThing that now runs Ruby on Rails as well.
Sarah already released the source of her weblog on the TextDrive forums.
And as for my weblog, there's still some things I want to complete but after that I'll probably release the source too. I'll do a write-up on my blog later today.
Just a quick personal recommendation for Sara's code. I've installed it on my site and it's been a great learning experience adding and modifying it. Recommended.
I've thought about using Instiki as the basis for a blog. It really seems like there is a lot of common code between a wiki and a blog.
Has anyone tried this? Can entries by password protected?
you may like to know that this is rails too:
(BTW I don't get why he bothers about source code. he's writing a web app, I think :/ )
Vanilla (http://www.vanillasite.at/space/start) started out as a wiki and evolved into blog software. Chris at www.langreiter.com uses it.
ass it to the rubyonrails.org 'real world' page :)
