The Ruby on Rails publishing software formerly known as Typo
Publify is a simple but full featured web publishing software. It's built around a blogging engine and a small message system connected to Twitter.
Publify follows the principles of the IndieWeb, which are self hosting your Web site, and Publish On your Own Site, Syndicate Everywhere.
Publify has been around since 2004 and is the oldest Ruby on Rails open source project alive.
To install Publify you need the following:
A database engine, MySQL, PgSQL or SQLite3
$ bundle install $ rake db:create $ rake db:migrate $ rake db:seed $ rake assets:precompile $ rails server
You can now launch you browser and access to 127.0.0.1:3000.
In order to install Publify on Heroku, you’ll need to do some minor tweaks.
You need to setup Amazon S3 storage to be able to upload files on your blog. Set Heroku config vars.
heroku config:set provider=AWS aws_access_key_id=YOUR_AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID aws_secret_access_key=YOUR_AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY aws_bucket=YOUR_AWS_BUCKET_NAME
To generate the Gemfile.lock, run:
HEROKU=true bundle install
Remove Gemfile.lock from .gitignore and commit it.
Add the HEROKU config variable to your Heroku instance:
heroku config:set HEROKU=true
Push the repository to Heroku.
When deploying for the first time, Heroku will automatically add a Database plugin to your instance and links it to the application. After the first deployment, don't forget to run the database migration and seed.
heroku run rake db:migrate db:seed
If application error has occurred after migration, you need to restart Heroku server.
