# Amanda Simple Blog engine powered by [Camping](http://camping.io). Posts are written in [Markdown](http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/), saved on [Dropbox](https://www.dropbox.com/) and stored in [Redis](http://redis.io). ## Usage Create a new markdown file with filename in the following format: `%Y%m%d%H%M.md` in the Amanda dropbox folder. First lines must contain the `title`, `date` and can contain `tags` and / or `slug`. Followed by your post. e.g. :::markdown Title: Hello World Date: 2013-04-17 22:57 Tags: tags, are, comma, separated Slug: this-slug-is-optional Hello World, first post! To publish your new post hit the configured refresh url, e.g. http://blog.example.com/{your_refresh_path} On the index page it always shows the most recent post and one random post. ## Deploy on heroku Push the app to [Heroku](http://heroku.com) and [configure following environment variables](https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/config-vars): :::markdown DROPBOX_APP_KEY=your_dropbox_app_key DROPBOX_APP_SECRET=your_dropbox_app_secret OPENREDIS_URL=redis:// # set by Heroku on choosing service REDIS_SERVICE=OPENREDIS_URL # set your redis service AUTHOR=Koen Van der Auwera TITLE=Koen Van der Auwera's blog HAVEAMINT=http://your.mint.installation.url/?js # optional!
