Linux/Unix Bash scripted weblog



Oh my some people have time on their hands. I just found Linux, Unix, /etc/: Unix Weblog Hacks where the writer says they wanted to do a weblog, but didn’t want to go with a big blog hosting service, or have to deal with a hard to install blogging script. So their solution was to write their own weblog tool in the bash scripting language.


It’s really pretty neat to look at the code though if you’ve done any bash scripting. I’ve got to say though, wordpress installation was MUCH easier than structuring an algorithm to handle posting, but… to each their own. Some advantages might be lighter server overhead? (NO need for mysql or php as he’s dealing with static pages.)
