Bashblog-ng is based on bashblog. The reasons for forking an already great project
bashblog had not been updated in almost 3 years
I wanted features that was not part of the original project
Out of these two reasons bashblog-ng was born. A drop-in replacement for bashblog
with more features but still minimalstic.
Bashblog was created out of the necessity of a very, very simple way to post
entries to a blog by using a public folder [on my server], without any
special requirements and dependencies. Works on GNU/Linux, OSX and BSD.
How simple? Just type './bb.sh post' and start writing your blogpost.
Ultra simple usage: Just type a post with your favorite editor and the
script does the rest. No templating.
No installation required. Download bb.sh and start blogging.
Zero dependencies. It runs just on base utils (date, basename, grep, sed,
GNU/Linux, BSD and OSX compatible out of the box, no need for
GNU coreutils on a Mac. It does some magic to autodetect which command
switches it needs to run depending on your system.
All content is static. You only need shell access to a machine with a
public web folder. Tip: advanced users could mount a remote public folder
via ftpfs and run this script locally
Allows drafts, includes a simple but clean stylesheet, generates the RSS
Support for tags/categories
Support for Markdown, Disqus, Twitter, Feedburner, Google Analytics.
The project is still maintained as of 2016. Bugs are fixed, and new
features are considered (see "Contributing")
Everything stored in a single ~1k lines bash script, how cool is that?! ;)
