Gollum for Rails

Build Status Dependency Status Gem Version Coverage Status Code Climate

gollum_rails combines the git-powered wiki software gollum with the extreme popular webframework rails. It improves the lightweight "gollum" experience which is quite awesome.

with gollum_rails you can:

  • Define your own views
  • Use your Rails layouts
  • Embed gollum it without mounting any rack application
  • Use own preprocession e.g. background workers for data procession
  • Use user authentication e.g. Devise or Authlogic

For an Editor to use with gollum_rails I personally like the gollum_editor

It provides nearly the same features as the official editor.


  • Python 2.5+ (2.7.3 recommended)
  • Ruby 1.9.3+ (2.0.0 recommended)
  • Unix like operating system (OS X, Ubuntu, Debian, and more)
  • Will not work on Windows (see gollum)
