Blogsiple - simple blog system example

Blogsiple is the official Node.js testbed for Create CMS UI integration. It has been built using the NodeXT framework.

Installation with NPM

$ npm install -g blogsiple

Installing with git

Check out this repository from GitHub:

$ git://

Then install dependencies:

$ cd blogsiple
$ npm install

You also need a JugglingDB database provider. By default we use Redis, which is installed via dependencies.


With globally-installed Blogsiple with a default configuration:

$ blogsiple

With locally-installed Blogsiple:

$ ./bin/blogsiple configuration/redis_8001.json

If you want to use a different database or a server setup, just create your own NodeXT configuration file for Blogsiple.

Importing blog entries

You can populate the Blogsiple database with blog posts from any RSS feed. Do this with:

$ ./bin/blogsiple_import_rss configuration/redis_8001.json


  • Authentication with PassportJS
  • Access controls into JugglingDB
  • Atom format
