I've been searching for a simple web tool to format HTML pages into a nice consistent web site. Available tools are (a) complicated, (b) require GUI, (c) require database, (d) must be dynamic, (e) written in language that I am not familiar with. All I want to do is create files and a directory and generate static pages. I don't want to tax my server with all those dynamic pages.
Then, by following links to links to links (more like a breadth-first browsing), I stumbled this excellent tool: Blosxom. The slogan said, "the zen of blogging." That's exactly what it is. It's a simple (one) perl script. (Okay, it is not simple, but what can you say to a 16715 bytes-sized script?) You have to check the web site for more information. Blosxom can generate a web site / blogs based on files located in a directory (and sub-directories beneath it).
Blosxom (a) is simple, (b) does not require GUI, (c) uses regular files (no need to setup a database), (d) can generate static pages, (e) written in perl. What can I say? I am touched!
Okay, now, all I have to do is creating a "flavour" (look and feel) for Blosxom-powered Blog. Bah! I am too lazy. I'll use a flavour that comes with the script :)
Thank you, thank you, Blosxom.
