The Ruby on Rails publishing software formerly known as Typo
Publify is a simple but full featured web publishing software. It's built around a blogging engine and a small message system connected to Twitter.
Publify follows the principles of the IndieWeb, which are self hosting your Web site, and Publish On your Own Site, Syndicate Everywhere.
Publify has been around since 2004 and is the oldest Ruby on Rails open source project alive.
- A classic multi user blogging engine
- Short messages with a Twitter connection
- Text filters (Markdown, SmartyPants, @mention to link, #hashtag to link)
- A widgets system and a plugin API
- Custom themes
- Advanced SEO capabilities
- Multilingual : Publify is (more or less) translated in English, French, German, Danish, Norwegian, Japanese, Hebrew, Simplified Chinese, Mexican Spanish, Italian, Lithuanian, Dutch, Polish, Romanian…
You can give Publify a try
The login / password to the admin are:

The demo is reset every hour.
You can download the latest Publify stable release.
If you want to run the master branch, you can clone the Publify repository. However, random things may be broken there at any time, so tread carefully!
Running the master branch in production is not recommended!
Install Publify locally
To install Publify you need the following:
- CRuby (MRI) 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 or 2.7
- Ruby on Rails 5.2.x
- A database engine, MySQL, PgSQL or SQLite3
- ImageMagick (used by
- Unzip Publify archive
- Rename database.yml.yourEngine as database.yml
- Edit database.yml to add your database name, login and password.
$ bundle install $ rake db:setup $ rake db:migrate $ rake db:seed $ rake assets:precompile $ rails server
You can now launch you browser and access 127.0.0.1:3000.
Install Publify on a server
You can use your preferred installation method (e.g., Capistrano) to install
Publify on a server. You will also need to set up the environment so it
contains at least
SECRET_KEY_BASE. Your web server may allow you to set this,
or you can consider using a tool like
Install Publify on Heroku
In order to install Publify on Heroku, you’ll need to do some minor tweaks.
First of all, you need to set up Amazon S3 storage to be able to upload files on your blog. Set Heroku config vars.
heroku config:set PROVIDER=AWS heroku config:set AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=<your_aws_access_key_id> heroku config:set AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=<your_aws_secret_access_key> heroku config:set AWS_BUCKET=<your_aws_bucket_name>
Next, you need to update
Gemfile. You should remove the
sqlite3 gems, set the Ruby version, and add
rails_12factor. The top of your
Gemfile should look something like this:
source 'https://rubygems.org' ruby '2.4.3' # Or whichever version you're running gem 'pg' gem 'rails_12factor' gem 'rails', '~> 5.2.6'
Next, to regenerate the Gemfile.lock, run:
Commit your updated
git commit -am 'Update bundle for Heroku'
Create a file
Procfile containing the following:
web: bundle exec puma -C config/puma.rb
Commit your new
git add Procfile git ci -m 'Tell Heroku how to run Rails'
You also need to set Rails' secret key base. Generate one using
then set the Heroku config var:
heroku config:set SECRET_KEY_BASE=<your_generated_secret>
Push the repository to Heroku.
When deploying for the first time, Heroku will automatically add a Database plugin to your instance and links it to the application. After the first deployment, don't forget to run the database migration and seed.
heroku run rake db:migrate db:seed
If application error has occurred after migration, you need to restart Heroku server.
