Blogcast 1.1.0 is Here!

Handwritten by TVD


A year ago, we set out to change the way creatives built community. That day, a better way to blog was born - Blogcast was born!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

In that time I’ve met so many wonderful designers, developers and UX professionals. Thousands of downloads later, we’re happy to say Blogcast provided the exact value we so hoped it would.

We believe in giving back. Blogcast has always been our way of saying, “Thank you!” Thank you to the community for all you do collectively. The world, indeed our very professions, wouldn’t be possible without the many and thankless contributions of countless designers and developers worldwide.

As always, there will be bugs to fix and features to add. But, what’s great is we’ll do it together. On my shortlist is User Authorization Roles. Ryan Bate’s excellent CanCan library comes to mind. Any takers?

Well, without further ado, please do enjoy Blogast 1.1.0. You can download from the Official Blogcast website or from the Official Blogcast Github Repo:

git clone
cd blogcast
bundle install

Then jump right in:

rails server
login with l/p: admin
