Why not? :) I (Thiago) for a long time had an idea of writing a blog engine that was heavily based on tags and which provided specific the option of having per-tag and per-post styles. In addition, it would be used as a light CMS too, so that's why Eloquentia uses the word 'page', not 'post'.
Another reason was creating a pratical, useful project to learn some new interesting stuff like Apache Tapestry 5.4 (due to the project at work, I barely had used T5.2 and later), MongoDB (I've never used a NoSQL database before) and Twitter Bootstrap.
Tags, tags everywhere
Each tag has:
- A name, which can only use lowercase letters, digits or dashes ('-')
- A boolean 'subdomain' field which defines affects the tag URL.
- A title
- An optional subtitle, which is used in the tag page and in pages which have this tag as their first one.
- CSS which will be added to its page and to all pages which have that tag.
The URL of a tag is based on its the name. For example, if a tag name is
tapestry, the URL
tapestry.domain.com if it's marked as a subdomain
Eloquentia is configured to use a local MongoDB instance without authentication.
collections are supposed to be in the
eloquentia database. This isn't configurable yet.
Eloquentia is powered by
- Apache Tapestry 5.4 - http://tapestry.apache.org - Web framework
- MongoDB - http://www.mongodb.org - NoSQL database (document-oriented)
- MongoJack - http://mongojack.org - POJO to MongoDB BSON object mapper based on Jackson JSON Processor.
- Twitter Bootstrap 3 - http://getbootstrap.com - CSS framework
- WYMeditor - http://www.wymeditor.org - rich text editor
- Prism.js - http://prismjs.com - code syntax highlighter
