TKH Content

This Rails engine puts the C in CMS. It provides the pages and the blog section.

Primarily developed for Ten Thousand Hours but we are happy to share if anybody finds it useful. It's meant primarily to be used with the tkh_cms gem suite but over time we want it to be used individually as well. The latter implementation will be accelerated if some issues and pull requests come in, denoting some interest out there.

It's still embryonic but many improvements to come. The blog is now coming bit by bit.


The following things are needed:

  • Ruby 1.9.2 or later
  • A shared/menus view partial or the tkh_menus gem


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'tkh_content', '~> 0.0'

Then execute:

$ bundle

Import migrations and needed files

    $ rake tkh_content:install

Run the migrations

    $ rake db:migrate

And then of course restart your server!

    $ rails s


Update the gem:

$ bundle update tkh_content

Update files, migrations, etc. This is not always needed.

    $ rake tkh_content:update

Run migrations if there are new ones

    $ rake db:migrate

Start your server!

    $ rails s


The main section is located at:


... and it should work out of the box
