Simple blogging with node/iojs + GitHub.

Details

The project goals/plans include:

  • simple node/iojs-based blog management system with minimal dependencies:
    • asynquence: async flow control
    • (possibly) native promise only: ES6 promise polyfill, for interaction with other libs, and/or to replace asynquence
    • grips: html & css templating
    • markdown rendering
    • git/GitHub/oauth
  • no database:
    • data persistence is either in local git, or (preferably) remote git/GitHub
  • user/auth is GitHub accounts
  • post content:
    • authored in markdown
    • stored/versioned in git/GitHub/gist.github
    • publishing can be "staged" via git branching
    • automation handled via git hooks
    • by default, all posts can be "forked" from the blog software with a "fork this" button on post; allows access to source markdown to any user
  • comments stored in gist.github:
    • private gist per post, for comment thread
    • (admin) comment approval workflow promotes from gist comment to static cache file (per post)
  • simple html/text and css templating:
    • simple default theme(s)
    • custom themes
  • incremental/partial caching in static files
  • site architecture:
    • simple "middle end" adaptive hybrid techniques
    • server-side templating renders initial page view
    • client-side templating takes over, renders all pages in SPA-style
    • client performance monitoring, middle-end can disable client-side rendering and fall back to server-side if needed
  • admin tools:
    • permissions driven by GitHub user settings
    • all settings changes made either alter the code or JSON config files
    • blog authoring can (should) be done externally, and admin tools just ingest/publish from git/GitHub source
