Node.js blogging with Jade and Express


Jen is a Node.js blogging engine based on Express and Jade, that uses JSON files to store posts.

To install JEN, either run

npm install -g jen-blog


git clone

Posts are stored in JSON format in the posts directory. They should be numbered geometrically, with your first post being 1.json and each subsequent post adding 1 to the file name (2.json, 3.json, 4.json etc.)

Posts look like this:

    "title":"Hello World",
    "text":"hello world"

Where ID is the same as the post file's name, title is your posts' title and text is the main body of the post. In the future there will be date and tag support (to go along with the search functionality)
