Chronicle - KISS (Keep it Simple Stupid) Blog engine

Today I installed chronicle. It performs pretty well and I'm going to port to it all my Wordpress blogs.

Installation is pretty easy:

  • download chronicle
  • unpack it
  • install some perl modules
  • create Makefile for it:
    all:
    chronicle/bin/chronicle \
        --input=in \
        --output=out \
        --theme=simple \
        --format=markdown \
        --theme-dir=chronicle/themes \
        --recent-dates-first \
        --blog-title="Dariusz Cieslak's Blog" \
        --blog-subtitle="The Art of Open Source Software - Developer view"
    

and voila! You can start blogging using your favourite text editor (have I heard vim?).
