Blogit - A Rails blogging solution
Blogit lets you add a blog to your Ruby on Rails application in just a few seconds.
NOTE: Blogit is currently dormant. I'm interested in spending some time to release version 2.0 for modern Rails environments, but development is going slowly due to very limiting time constraints.. If you're interested in helping to update for version 2.0, please get in touch.
Add these to your Gemfile
gem "blogit" # Blogit depends on ActsAsTaggableOn gem "acts-as-taggable-on"
bundle install to install the gem.
# add an initializer to config/initializers with all of the configuration options $ rails g blogit:install # This will add the necessary migrations to your app's db/migrate directory rake blogit:install:migrations # You don't need to run this again if you've already done so rake acts_as_taggable_on_engine:install:migrations # This will run any pending migrations rake db:migrate
then add the following to your routes.rb file:
# config/routes.rb mount Blogit::Engine => "/blog"
Finally, declare which of your models acts as blogger in your app (probably User or Admin).
class User < ActiveRecord::Base blogs end
Go to http://localhost:3000/blog and see your marvelous new blog.
Blogit provides you with the following features
- An XML Sitemap located at
- An RSS feed located at
- Internationalization (see the locales file for configurable options)
- Share links (Google+, Twitter & Facebook)
- Disquss Comments
- Code Syntax Highlighting CSS file (add
*= require pygmentsto your app's stylesheet)
- CSS themes
We're designing blogit to be as modular as possible, so you can pick and choose the elements you'd like to use.
- For Admin CMS please install blogit-admin
