Rangitaki Version 1.1.2 Development Release

I’m glad to announce another milestone an the way to Rangitaki 1.2.

This time it’s quite a small one, which brings a few code style improvements and one new feature called pagination, which can split your blog into several pages, each with a set amount of posts.

Pagination is disabled by default. It can enabled through setting:

$pagination = number

The integer is the amount of posts you wan’ to show on each page. E.g. if you set

$pagination = 4

you will see four posts on every site.

Warning: If you use your own theme and want to use pagination: You have to update your theme by styling pag_buttons, button, pag_next and pag_prev. Have a look at the themes shipped with Rangitaki.

You can update your installation again with the update script: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mmk2410/rangitaki/master/update-scripts/1-1-1_1-1-2.sh


I’m proud to present all of you another piece of software that I wrote: Scorelib.

Scorelib is a music score organization tool with a command line interface, perfect for usage in your favorite terminal emulator. As most of the software I develop, it is written for Linux systems and published on GitHub.

The entered data is saved in a SQLite database in your home directory.

Currently Scorelib is in version 0.1 and I hope, that I find enough time to make it more customizable and to add additional features. Feel free to open Issues on GitHub about bugs or feature requests. You’re of course also welcome to contribute to this project, it is written in Python (but don’t expect any good code style).

Rangitaki Version 1.0

Eight months ago I had the idea of a blogging engine. First I planned to write the blogging engine in JavaScript, but in February I learned PHP and I decided, that this is the better language for this project. The main goal of Rangitaki (earlier known as pBlog) was, is and will always be to be as simple to use as possible, but with any possible feature. And I turned out to be possible, especially with the subblogs and the Rangitaki Control Center. Now it is time to release a stable version of what is now called Rangitaki. A blogging engine with focus on simplicity. Easy to install, easy to configure, easy to use.

Rangitaki Version 0.9: Release Condidate for 1.0

It’s time now for the last pre-release of version 1.0: the release candidate for version 1.0. After nearly seven weeks Rangitaki is now stable enough to release the last testing version.

  • pictures in articles not centred
  • long links longer than article card (especially a problem on mobile devices)
  • Localization strings are now grouped in one array

GitHub Repository

GitHub Release 0.9

Rangitaki Version 0.8

After one week of testing and bugfixing (mainly the RCC) we now release the beta version (number 0.8) of Rangitaki.

This versions brings various security updates for the RCC and you should really update to this version, if you’re using the RCC. Otherwise you can wait until the release candidate , which will come this sunday with more bugfixes, especially for the blogging engine.

Stay tuned 🙂

P.S: Right now I’m searching for a few people, who can help me to localize Rangitaki by translating the strings in lang/en.php into their language. If you translated theses words, make a pull request on GitHub or send me the file over mail.
