Reprise: A Ruby-Powered Blogging App in 100 Lines Including Templates

By Peter Cooper / November 9, 2007

Eivind Uggedal has written in with a note about a new blog system he's built using the lightweight Sinatra framework. It's about 100 lines long including the inline templates! An example of the finished software powers Eivind's own blog. Sinatra is looking to be an absolutely excellent mini-framework for running up basic non-MVC applications, and you can learn more about it here.

    I am all fine for minimalistic approaches. It help keeps complexity rather low.

    But can there be more examples with shiny colours please? :-)

    Aman: Thanks for posting. I have your mail and will be doing something on Ramaze very soon. I just tend to let Ruby Inside submission related mails stew a bit as I figure out the posting schedules :)
