Blosxom

Blosxom

Blosxom (pronounced "Blossom") is a lightweight yet feature-packed weblog application designed from the ground up with simplicity, usability, and interoperability in mind.

Fundamental is its reliance upon the file system, folders and files as its content database. Blosxom's weblog entries are plain text files. Write from the comfort of your favorite text editor and hit the save button. Create, edit, rename, and delete entries on the command-line, via FTP, WebDAV, or anything else you might use to manipulate your files. All of the weblog entries are stored as plain text files consisting of a headline, optional headers or meta-information (if using certain plugins), and a blank line followed by the post body.

Despite its tiny footprint, Blosxom does not skimp on features, sporting the majority of features one would find in any other Weblog application. Additionally, Blosxom 2 includes support for plugins, and threefore has extensive customization.

Blosxom is simple, straightforward, minimalist Perl affording even the dabbler an opportunity for experimentation and customization.
