MOOD

KISS blog implementation in D tuned for programmers

Based on http://vibed.org

Goals / Features

  1. stand-alone binary with minimal external dependencies
  2. simple deployment under dedicated posix user
  3. straightforward code, minimal to none configurability - fork instead
  4. basic features include publishing posts, tags and RESTful API for data model
  5. with -version=MoodWithPygmentize does out of the box code highlighting if pygmentize is on $PATH
  6. no JavaScript
  7. HTTPS-only
  8. no database needed, articles can be edited as simple Markdown files

Running

  1. fork this repository
  2. modify main.d to use valid paths to SSL certificates
  3. (optional) tweak Diet templates / CSS / code as you see fit
  4. dub build (optionally enable MoodWithPygmentize version in project file)
  5. dub run
  6. (optional/recommended) modify nginx.include to use valid domain name / certificates and include it into your nginx.conf

Architecture

mood.storage implements in-memory immutable cache for post data. It saves new posts to the filesystem in a hard-coded layout and reloads them when mood process starts.

mood.api defines data model used by rest of the application. It is exposed via RESTful API thus allowing any custom client programs to fetch the data from blog. This is the only part of Mood that has direct access to mood.storage.

mood.rendering contains set of functions that build data representation in requested format based on supplied arguments. Naturally, HTML page rendering (both live and offline) is the main part.

mood.util contains various tools that author found missing in vibe.d while writing this project.

mood.config defines some funamental hard-coded configuration options like administrator password or filesystem paths used. Everything else is configured by simply changing the code.

mood.application is the entry point for all web page routes. It uses mood.api to get the blog data and mood.rendering to actually build the response.
