Running in development mode

WBlog MUST run in Linux or OSX. I assume you are using OS X 10.

You can run it like a Ruby on Rails project as usual:

  1. Check dependencies
  ruby -v
  # 2.3.1
  postgres  --version
  # 9.x.x
  1. Clone it

git clone [email protected]:windy/wblog.git

cd wblog
  1. Install dependencies & configure
  gem install bundler
  bundle install
  cp config/application.yml.example config/application.yml
  cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml


's content as you need
  1. Start it
  rails s

Open browser with


If there is any error found, please check your database's user and password.

  1. Post the first blog

visit: http://localhost:3000/admin, input your username and password configurated in

. then, post a new article.

OK, That's all.


WBlog uses

as automation deployment tool, uses
as the Rack container.

WBlog recommends

as reverse proxy server.

It will be very fast.

Ruby on Rails project deployment is another topic, I would NOT talk it here.
