Announcing Galileo - A minimal but modern CMS
I am happy to announce that Galileo CMS is now available from CPAN! This project has been my on-train side-project, but its come a long way in a short time. The most exciting thing for me is that its entirely installable from CPAN. To try it out, simply do
$ cpanm Galileo $ galileo setup $ galileo daemon
of course, you can also run it using the servers provided by Mojolicious, or using your favorite psgi-compliant server (as long as they support websockets).
Authorized users edit pages using markdown with a live-preview. All updates to pages, menus and users are sent via websockets. Styling is courtesy of Twitter’s Bootstrap library.
Some things that are still on the list:
- Other than the database, it is not tremendously configurable yet, but I don’t think that should be hard to do. With a few changes it might be decently themable by overloading the styles defined by Bootstrap.
- Images cannot be uploaded yet, but they can be linked to from external sources, or at least that should work :-)
Unfortunately I missed the deadline for Perl Weekly, but I did get it out before I go on vacation tomorrow, and I’m excited that I made that goal. So please, try it out; though probably not for anything mission-critical yet.
Let me know what you think!
