BEEPS AND BLIPS FROM OUTERSPACE
FILESTACK - A SIMPLE OPEN SOURCE BLOGGING PLATFORM

After one hack to many, I've decided to abandon my WordPress installation on Dreamhost and create my own lightweight replacement.  WordPress is just too large a target for hackers and comment spammers making a small blog a chore to maintain and backup.

Thus, Filestack was born.  It's an open source, Apache 2.0 licensed, blog platform built on Django.

Here's it's raison d'être:

  • Easy content storage with files (back up is painless)
  • Single user
  • Basic CMS features: Scheduled publishing, Categories, Tags, etc...
  • WYSIWYG HTML editor
  • No destructive actions, like content deletion, available via HTTP
  • Quick serving of a WordPress export file

Bonus Features:

  • Themeable and with Django templates
  • File upload helper
  • Encapsulated Django app with quick installation

Filestack was built with Python, Django, jQuery, 960.gs, fancybox, and TinyMCE.

You can find the source code on GitHub.
