Major MObtvse Update

I’ve just merged the experimental branch of MObtvse into master. This represents a huge update and in addition to the feature list below there’s a nice update to the default theme, great new editor, improved Kudos integration on the admin screen, and a number of more subtle improvements. I’m really happy with the progress I’ve been able to make on MObtvse in my free time, and if you’ve been considering it, now is definitely the time to grab it from Github and give it a spin.

It should be noted that while it’s fairly easy to install, and the README attempts to cover all the details, people who’ve never installed a Rails app before, or used the command line, may feel a bit out of their depth.

Sorry non-geeks, we’ve got a little ways to go before installation is totally painless for you, but I’m working on it.

Current Feature List (as of Aug 7, 2012):

  • Kudos
  • Live Markdown preview
  • Drafts
  • Scheduled posts
  • Image uploads via S3
  • Disqus integration
  • Google Analytics integration
  • Archives page with Tags and Kudos integration (example here)

Pull requests will be happily accepted. ;)
