README

Bloggo

Bloggo is a self-hosted blogging CMS. Or at least it will be. One day.

The idea is to use a fast and simple language for the backend, Go, and a simple system of CSS Grids for allowing to customize the interface. This way, it makes it easy for everyone to have their own custom blog.

Dependencies

How to run it

  • docker-compose up
  • Open localhost in your favorite browser to access the app

Configuration

Default configuration:

LogLevel=DEBUG
MySQLRetryDuration=60000
MySQLRetryInterval=2000
MySQLURL=root:root@tcp(db:3306)/bloggo?charset=utf8&parseTime=True&loc=Local
ServerAddress=0.0.0.0
ServerPort=4242

Please note that the JWT Secret isn't configured by default and needs to be set for the app to work properly. It is also highly recommended to change the credentials used for the database.

To set the configuration values, you need to set environment variables. See the environment variables section. This can be done in the docker-compose.yml file for docker deployments, or by setting your own environment variables if you are using the bloggo binary.

API Blueprints

See the README.md file for the blueprints.

Postman collection

Testing

To test the API, I recommend importing the postman collection and using Postman.

You will need to first register a new user using one of the provided requests, and to update the collection's authentication token with the token the registration API returned you.

In order to do that, hover the Bloggo collection name in Postman and click on the three dots to see the collection options. Then, click on Edit and navigate to the Authorization tab. Finally, paste your token in the Token field, without the double quotes.

Environment

If you are using docker for deploying Bloggo, you can easily update those environment variables in the docker-compose.yml file like such:

Here are the different variables that you can set:

BLOGGO_LOG_LEVEL

Sets the log level. Default value is DEBUG.

Examples: DEBUG, INFO, WARNING, ERROR, FATAL.

BLOGGO_SERVER_ADDRESS

Sets the API IP address. Default value is 0.0.0.0.

Examples: 192.168.0.5, localhost, 10.15.17.160...

BLOGGO_SERVER_PORT

Sets the port used by the API. Default value is 4242.

Can be any value between 1 and 65535.

BLOGGO_MYSQL_URL

Sets the address on which the MySQL driver will attempt to connect. Default value is root:root@tcp(db:3306)/bloggo?charset=utf8&parseTime=True&loc=Local.

It is highly recommended to change the credentials used for the database, and this means this default value has to be overwritten by replacing root:root with the new username and password.

Also, if you want to use a MySQL database that isn't in docker-compose.yml, you should replace db in db:3306 with the IP address of the MySQL host.

Example: admin:password@tcp(172.17.16.140:3307)/mydatabase?charset=utf8&parseTime=True&loc=Local

BLOGGO_MYSQL_RETRY_DURATION

Sets the duration for which Bloggo should attempt to reconnect to MySQL after a failed attempt. Default value is 1m (one minute).

Examples: 1s, 10m, 24h, 7d, ...

BLOGGO_MYSQL_RETRY_INTERVAL

Sets the interval between each reconnection attempt to MySQL within the retry duration. Default value is 2s (two seconds).

Examples: 1s, 10m, 24h, 7d, ...

BLOGGO_BCRYPT_RUNS

Sets the number of iterations of hashing that the bcrypt algorithm will run when hashing passwords. Default value is 11.

Can be any value between 4 and 31.
