"Awesome! minimalistic blog for Spree. It use markdown instead of html so no images or media are stored but linked."

The extension is built for older version of Spree but need to be updated to work seamless with Spree 2.x. Even if we made the tests pass on Travis doesn't mean that it fully work due to poor test coverage.

We have started to upgrade the extension but due to our schedule we need assistant to finalize it and write tests due to that it has no real test coverage including required Capybara feature specs due to these confirms that the extension hooks into the Spree version correctly.

Its a complete remake of the previous version but due to that much functionality was in place we considered to build on to of it instead of starting from scratch.

This is a job for someone familiar with blog solutions, our approach to this might not be optimal so if you have better ideas you have full freedom the only requirements are that its integrated in spree admin and use markdown with db storage (we use read-only cloud server). Blogs should be simple.

High prio

- Add factories and fix mass-assign protected attributes in tests
- Fix rest of port from older version
- Update so views and hooks apply seamless into Spree 2.x
- Fix override so its hooked into admin
- Fix assets
- Apply epiceditor or cleaner like markdown-editor
- RSpec tests coverage >= 95%
- Feature specs with Capybara so we know it always there


- Add ability decorator with tests
- Add preferences to customize markdown editor
- Better caching of posts and assets
- Pingback
- Social share (responsive and retina ready font icons)
- Make it more html5ish

Low prio

- Translations and all other trivial stuff you can leave to us.
