Setup a planet for community blogging
this thread follows this on concerning the possibility to open a planet to aggregate blog posts witten by the community.
I studied a bit some software and I found 3 :
- the original Planet software which run on Python (demo),
- the Venus fork which also run on Python (demo),
- the Pluto fork which seem to be written in Ruby (demo).
The Venus and Pluto fork demos are very ugly but they seem to have a templating system (e.g : Pluto's). This will allow us to have a coherent design with the foundation site but also mean more work to setup the planet on starting.
IMHO, Pluto is the best choice as it is written in Ruby. If anybody as already use it before, or even setup a planet before, I'm open to any suggestions. I will try to setup a Pluto server on my computer as soon as I have it back to make a feedback.
