Squib is a free, open source, weblog publishing application available under the liberal MIT Licence. Squib is written in the Ruby programming language and uses the Ruby on Rails web framework.
Squib was written by Matt Mower in 2005. Squib was written as a replacement for his blogging package Radio Userland
and an urge to learn rails
. Since then it has gone through several partial rewrites as the Rails
feature set developed .
- Ruby 1.8.4+
- RubyGems 0.8+
- Rails 1.2.3
Squib 0.3.6 was released on Dec 20th 2005. There was a 0.4 branch intended to support multiple weblogs that was eventually abandoned. Squib 0.5 is the current stable release and was released in 2006 containing a few fixes and improvements to the 0.3 release.
