I have created a simple blog using Grails and MongoDB (demo hosted at heroku). You can find the source code for this blog at github.

You can also browse around the admin module of the blog using following credentials.

URL: http://grails-mongodb-blog.herokuapp.com/admin/
Username: visitor
Password: visitor123

Following are the list of plugins I have used in this project.

Default Plugins

  • Jquery 1.8.3
  • Resources 1.2
  • Tomcat 2.2.4
  • Cache 1.0.1

Security Plugins

  • Spring Security 1.2.7.3

Cloud Plugins

  • Webxml 1.4.1
  • Heroku 1.0.1
  • Cloud Support 1.0.8

Other Plugins

  • ckeditor 3.6.6.1.0

Note: You may have to refresh the hosted blog at heroku couple of times if you are the 1st one accessing it in the last 2 hours as the free version of heroku goes to sleep after a while.

    I think this is well done. Just a thought – did you mean Spring Security instead of Sprint Security?

    • hussainanjar

      Thanks for pointing out … yes its suppose to be Spring Security .. fixed it.

      I have raised a ticket with MongoHQ as my heruko instance suddenly cannot connect to it.

      I guess heroku free version is not enough for my sample app anyways for now it should be working.

  • Josebovet

    Application Error!

    • hussainanjar

      I have to restart my heroku instance after a while, I guess free one is not good enough for my app.

  • Egwor

    Wold be cool to get a walkthrough of the code in a blog post?

      Agreed, I am just getting started into grails and would love a walk through on how to do this well, maybe starting from scratch and making a video or something similar.
