While I was looking for either blogging software or software to display my WordPress blog entries on my home page I stumbled on an Open Source Blogging Engine called FlatPress which is still under development which claimed to allow blogging without the setting up of a database.
So I thought I would try it on my Linux Computer here to find it was every easy to set up, easy to customise and more importantly even for piece of software still in development it was remarkably stable bar a few minor glitches. Though it is still early days in using it but it looks like the software has a great potential for those who simply want to host a blog on their own web server without the hassle of setting up a database.
So far I would recommend it for people like myself who want to host a blog on their own server at home just because of it ease of deployment and customisation.
Myself I am currently using the software in a more personal blog off my home page mostly as a test and somewhere where I can express myself a bit more than here.
The following are the links to both the FlatPress Home Page and my new blog:
