Bloguito is a really small blog engine.
some design constraints
here's a few of the design constraints I imposed on myself for this project:
- no databases - this means the posts will be plain text files, written in markdown or some superset of markdown.
- no technologies I am familiar with - this means
ruby Node.js and nginx. and css. yes. I don't know css.
what's planned for the very first version
- reading posts from a directory and showing them in a page
what's planned for the future
some history and motivation
I have to admit that the first purpose of this blog engine really is just to geek out a bit.
I wanted to learn ruby, I was suffering from not invented here syndrome, and I guess it's just not
professional that your personal website is just an installation of wordpress or a blog on tumblr.
I also wanted to remove PHP from my server completelly :-|
Finally, my friend Pedro did something similar so I wanted to see if I could to it as well.
Except I wanted it even simpler.
