Typo blog engineI’ve just released a “Recent Posts” sidebar plugin for Typo, the Ruby on Rails blog engine that powers this blog. It displays the last posts title and a snippet of the post body.

You can configure the title of the plugin, the number of posts and the excerpt’s length in the sidebar admin.

Download and install


Typo V4.0 and above (trunk works) with plugins in /vendor/plugins.


Just unpack the archive into the /vendor/plugins folder of your Typo install. Restart your Typo instance. Go to the admin / sidebar to configure it. You’re done.


The plugin is released under the MIT Licence.
