Squib is my experimental weblog software. It was started some time in 2005 (I think perhaps July or August) as a replacement for another package and as an excuse to learn pre-1.0 Rails. Since then it has gone through several partial rewrites as my Ruby and Rails knowledge has improved and the Rails feature set has developed. During 2006 it didn't get much attention because, more or less, it worked. Recently I have made an effort to bring it up to code and to improve the feature set and interface. The plan is to release a, much improved, 0.6 in a few weeks time.
- Ruby 1.8.4+
- RubyGems 0.8+
- Rails 1.2.3
- Patience and a steady hand
Squib 0.3.6 was released on Dec 20th 2005.
There was an 0.4 branch intended to support multiple weblogs that was eventually abandoned.
Squib 0.5 was released in 2006 containing a few fixes and improvements to the 0.3 release.

Patches for obviously missing functionality (e.g. Metaweblog API support) are welcome.
