# Blogit - A Rails blogging solution

Blogit lets you add a blog to your Ruby on Rails application in just a few seconds.

## Installation

Add these to your Gemfile

``` ruby
gem "blogit"
# Blogit depends on ActsAsTaggableOn
gem "acts-as-taggable-on"

...and run `bundle install` to install the gem.

Next, run:

``` bash
# add an initializer to config/initializers with all of the configuration options
$ rails g blogit:install

# This will add the necessary migrations to your app's db/migrate directory
rake blogit:install:migrations

# You don't need to run this again if you've already done so
rake acts_as_taggable_on_engine:install:migrations

# This will run any pending migrations
rake db:migrate


then add the following to your routes.rb file:

``` bash
# config/routes.rb
mount Blogit::Engine => "/blog"

Finally, declare which of your models acts as blogger in your app (probably User or Admin).

``` ruby
class User < ActiveRecord::Base



Go to http://localhost:3000/blog and see your marvelous new blog.
