Paper Trail

Paper Trail is a single-user publishing tool for book reviews. It’s written in Ruby on Rails, and the source code is available on GitHub, licensed under the GPL.

Some rudimentary documentation is included in the README file. If you find any bugs, please let me know via the GitHub issue tracker.


URLify is a library extracted from Paper Trail for converting diacritical marks to unaccented equivalents, to assist with ASCII-safe URI creation. It also includes a utility method to remove subtitles. URLify is a Ruby gem, so to install it just run the following command. Depending on your system configuration, you may have to sudo.
