This blog is powered by a custom blog engine I wrote in Rails. I call it bbot as an homage to my favorite Ruby irc bot, rbot.
I built bbot for two reasons: I wanted to build a completely RESTful application from scratch and I was tired of wrangling with Wordpress. bbot is simple; it does exactly want I need and nothing more. It supports all the basic blogging features: posts, comments, moderating, drafts, permalinks, etc. plus non-post static page (e.g. my about).
I’ve decided to make bbot available on github: http://github.com/mrchucho/bbot/tree/master. This way I hope to learn more about git and share bbot with anyone who might be interested.
