News from Typo edge

Posted by Harry Seldon on March 08, 2009

I have updated this blog engine in order to install the recently added Feedburner support. My recent post about Rails heroes RSS feeds clearly showed me that feedburner was a must have as everybody is using it. Feedburner gives you an idea of your RSS traffic.

Here are some more recently added features to Typo:

More info, for French readers, here

I encountered some small issues during this update. Here they are, so you can avoid them.

Install

Since my last post about Typo installation from git, the plugin management has changed. Typo now uses gems. Therefore, to install locally Typo, the process is now:

git clone git://github.com/fdv/typo.git
sudo gem install htmlentities  coderay json  calendar_date_select
sudo gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
sudo gem install datanoise-actionwebservice mislav-will_paginate
Rake db:migrate

You can still manage the plugins such as related content or recent comments using git submodules.

Routes

Some routes have changed. Therefore, you will probably need to update your theme. For instance: in theme/views/articles_comment_form.html.erb I replaced:

comments_path(@article) 
by 
@article.comment_url
and 
preview_new_comment_path(@article) 
by 
@article.preview_comment_url

For the live search: in theme/views/shared_search.html.erb I replaced:

{ :controller => 'live', :action => 'search' } 
by
live_search_articles_url

Cache

This is about Typo edge. It is not supposed to be a stable version. So use with caution! Right now the cache needs some improvement which should be done soon. Temporarily, I have disabled it by commenting in app/model/blog_sweeper.rb the line:

observe Category, Blog, User, Article, Page, Categorization, Comment, Trackback

About recent news, Matijs van Zuijlen has joined the Typo core team.

Thanks a lot to the Typo core team, Fred, Cyril and Matijs, for their excellent work and also for their extremely reactive support.
