Rassmalog is a static blog engine based on RSS 2.0, YAML, and Textile. It features an extensible blog formatting mechanism, easy configuration, and automatic tagging, archiving, syntax coloring, and table of contents. Web site: http://rassmalog.rubyforge.org Version 3.2.0 This release improves usability and simplifies the blogâ€™s appearance. 1 Features â€¢ Tags and archives now use the tag cloud visualization method. â–¡ You can configure the cloud generation in the config/chapter.erb template. â€¢ A config/index.erb template has been added for customization of generated index*.html files. â–¡ The search page now explicitly states that it is really just an exhaustive listing of the content of all entries available on the blog. 2 Usability â€¢ Jakob Nielsenâ€™s guidelines for web design are now followed. â€¢ Added horizontal rules (<hr/>) to improve readability in text-mode browsers. 3 Mechanics â€¢ Entry summarization is now the responsibility of the config/entry.erb template. â–¡ When entries are summarized, their meta information (date, tags, etc.) is now omitted because I feel that people are more interested in the content of a blog entry than when it was written and how it is tagged. This omission leads to a much cleaner and simpler user interface. As always, you can change this behavior if you wish. â€¢ The String.table_of_contents method now operates on XHTML instead of Textile. â–¡ The generated table of contents can link directly to any HTML heading because it now supports nonstandard characters, such as HTML entities (and thereby non-English languages), nested HTML elements, and so on.
