Octopress framework Octopress framework

A blogging framework for hackers.
http://octopress.org/

Octopress is a framework designed by Brandon Mathis for Jekyll, the blog aware static site generator powering Github Pages. To start blogging with Jekyll, you have to write your own HTML templates, CSS, Javascripts and set up your configuration. But with Octopress All of that is already taken care of. Simply clone or fork Octopress, install dependencies and the theme, and you're set.

@nils_hellberg delighted to hear it! :)

@philzine we don't write or maintain migration scripts. You can use Octopress for anything you might use Jekyll for: static sites, blogs.
September 24, 2013
@iamioannis Just so you know 2.1 isn't a stable branch. The master branch is the current stable release.
September 22, 2013
@_barc0de The docs are for Octopress though, and it too much to try to explain to everyone on any system how to set up dependencies.
September 22, 2013
@_barc0de I'm sorry for how frustrating this has been for you. I'll agree setting up a Ruby env can be challenging.

@aras_p in the coming week.

@dividebyzeroZA right now that's mostly in the minds of Brandon and Parker. We'll be posting something on it soon so stay tuned. :)
September 20, 2013
@jstoutenburg Middleman had been a gem forever. It's awesome and very flexible for static sites. Octopress is more focused on geek blogging.
September 20, 2013
@doismellburning for now. Yes. Other branches are fairly experimental right now. Have fun! :)
September 20, 2013
@rahimsnow yes master should be in good shape.
September 14, 2013
How could I not share this? Octopi are awesome. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=aoCzZHcwKxI
September 14, 2013
@rahimsnow referring to a public roadmap.

@sprangles This might help. https://github.com/imathis/jekyll-page-hooks
September 12, 2013
@robslifka Awesome. Rock on! :)
September 12, 2013
@robslifka nope. Jekyll only handles categories for posts.
September 11, 2013
@ajgon Aw shucks. Thanks. :)
September 10, 2013
@bitNomad That is caused by a directory_watcher update. Limit it to version 1.4.1. The fix is on master: https://github.com/imathis/octopress/commit/3e1707d289b557d794bfaacbb6682a008223d4c9
September 9, 2013
@burnscsb if you change the URL in your config and regenerate it should be fine.
September 5, 2013
@brian_pearce We've finally nailed it down. Blog post coming soon after @imathis gets back from BlendConf.
August 30, 2013
@basilmon92 Rake doesn't like the ‘!', try `rake new_post` (with no title). You'll be prompted to type a title (no quotes needed).
August 30, 2013
@rkcudjoe Sweet. I'm glad that was what it was. I think I'll add it to the gemfile.
August 30, 2013
@rkcudjoe The directory_watcher gem may be the culprit: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15591000/jekylls-auto-doesnt-work Try adding to your Gemfile: gem ‘directory_watcher', ‘1.4.1'
August 30, 2013
@rkcudjoe Hmm. Jekyll is what checks for file system changes, so I suspect that's where the issue is. Are you running in a Dropbox folder?
August 30, 2013
@rkcudjoe What did you upgrade? The current master version doesn't work with Jekyll 1.0 (we're working on an update)
August 30, 2013
@rkcudjoe Hmm, I'm not sure what you mean.

@askotzko Good luck. It's a fun problem. :)
August 28, 2013
@askotzko Not exactly, though many would love a way to publish on mobile. Most end up using some crazy dropbox + witchcraft solution.
August 28, 2013
@askotzko Once I've got everything going smoothly enough I'd love to get into dynamic deployment solutions. It's a ways off yet though.
August 28, 2013
@askotzko Hmm, not really. Static files can't publish themselves automatically. You'd need to set up a process to manage that for you.
August 26, 2013
@sebdah I'm sorry I can't give you s schedule. It's still in active development, there's a lot changing, but we're getting close.
August 26, 2013
@FrankyCaron Excellent, I'm glad it's all fixed. :)
August 26, 2013
@FrankyCaron You should rm -rf _deploy then run `bundle exec rake setup_github_pages` again. That should work, I think.
August 26, 2013
@FrankyCaron Sorry about that. I pushed a couple of commits yesterday which fixed that. Pull from your octopress remote to get the fix.
August 24, 2013
@ryanmccrary I'm sorry. I found the issue and I've pushed a fix. You'll want to `rm -rf _deploy; bundle exec rake setup_github_pages` again.
August 24, 2013
@ryanmccrary Taking a look. Sorry!
August 24, 2013
@ryanmccrary I just pushed a fix to address it. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18408716/rake-aborted-during-setup-of-github-pages-for-octopress/18410193#18410193 Thanks for the report! :)
August 23, 2013
@ss1271 Sweet. I'm glad you're all sorted. :)
August 22, 2013
@ss1271 Allen, I'm sorry I don't know what to tell you. Usually that's an issue with DIsqus, have your URLs changed?
August 19, 2013
@robslifka If you used the https connection it will do that. Try setting the _deploy directory's remote origin URL with the ssh URL instead.
August 17, 2013
@jeff7091 There may be, but we haven't written it. It would require a Twitter dev account, or a hosted service to have post permissions.
August 15, 2013
@BrianInBrooklyn @bnadlerjr LOL! Have fun. :)

@vielmetti I'm sorry for the trouble with Ruby. Good luck!

@Gastove I'm glad to hear it. Thanks for sharing your solution. That's what makes this community great.
August 12, 2013
@Gastove Hmm that worked in web inspector. Whatever the case, you just need to set align-left to override td's somehow and you're golden.
August 12, 2013
@Gastove Looking at your current theme, you could try adding: .entry-content .gist-file td { text-align: left } to your custom/_style.scss
July 20, 2013
@mikerkeating I need to update that. Thanks for the report.
July 18, 2013
@xautjzd are you building this blog on two separate computers? You may need to cd into _deploy and pull first.
July 12, 2013
@lkdjiin I think support for something like that would have to come from Jekyll.
July 12, 2013
@lkdjiin We don't have plans to do this right now. I'm curious, how would you think this would even work given that Octopress is static?
July 12, 2013
@andyczerwonka Yes, Twitter canceled their public JSON api. They have a first party timeline widget they're pushing.
