Orangutan Blogging EngineThis is a blogging system written in Ruby on Rails and assumes a technically savvy Rails user. Sorry, this isn't a replacement for Wordpress. I figure if you want to do a blogging system in Rails it's because you're using the framework already. So much of the configuration of this assumes you're handy with rake and YML files and the like.
The blogging system is intended to rely on mashing up a bunch of content from various sites instead of doing a lot of things by itself. Not only is this due to my own personal laziness but also it's due to my desire to use the best of breed of the various applications.
Features supported in this first beta release (which I'm numbering 080325):
Standard blogging features (comments, posts, etc) RSS (Atom) feeds for posts Flickr support Twitter support Disqus support Google Analytics support Tagging for posts and searches and indexes by date and tags Views are done using HAML for easy modification Internal comment system with email notification of new posts, Gravatar support and more Flexible architecture allowing for new custom functionality to be easily added Administration user interface I wrote this for personal use because I didn't like the way Typo and Mephisto worked internally and wanted something of my own to hack around with. I'm releasing this under the MIT license in hope that someone else may find this useful.
Please let me know if you have any issues or would like to contribute code.
