Hi Ian,

The issue here is that ruby couldn't find the sass executable on your
machine.  I just changed the theme deployment code so that it no longer
relies on an external sass executable.  Please pull the latest code from
github, run 'git submodules update' to update the blorgit themes code
and give 'rake themes:default' another try.

This problem is more complicated.  Blorgit relies on Emacs to actually
export org-mode files to html.  To do this it passes the org-mode files
to an Emacs server using the 'emacsclient' command.  To allow your Emacs
instance to act as a server for blorgit you need to load the
org-interaction.el file located in the backend/acts_as_org/elisp/
directory.  I have added the following to my .emacs so that this happens

;; serve up web pages for blorgit
(load "~/src/blorgit/backend/acts_as_org/elisp/org-interaction.el")

For running on a remote server see the "Deploying to a Remote Server"
section of the blorgit page on
worg. http://orgmode.org/worg/blorgit.php#sec-3.5

This is certainly the most complicated part of running blorgit, and if
you have any suggestions for how to improve the page on worg please let
me know (of feel free to edit the page yourself, as that's what worg is

I hope this helps, and please let me know if there are any more issues.
Hopefully your work getting this running will clear the way for future
blorgit users. :)

Thanks -- Eric
