A simple lightweight blog-engine, made for you to customize to your unbelievably good tastes!

What is Blogweenie?
Posted Mar 11, 2013

Blogweenie is a super simple-tiny-baby-lightweight blog engine, that is so streamlined and flexible, your tech savvy grandma could do it! It uses PHP + JSON so no database installations required!

This is meant for coders (HTML/CSS) who don't want to write their own simple blog engine, but have a project where wordpress or other engines are, how you say, "way overkill" for their needs. Sometimes projects don't require a complex blog with all of its database installations, themes, plugins, blah blah blah. So I introduce to you the Blogweenie, a drag-and-drop installation and styles via css. Fully customizable..feature list below.

  • single-file JSON based data storage (no mysql/no installation/done!)
  • Admin Control panel for managing/editing/adding posts
  • Screw themes! Edit your own damn stylesheet!
  • HTML! You get to write in full html, screw WYSIWYG's
  • It's mobile! Move it to and from any directory you want, it's all relative
  • It's flexible . This thing is bare bones, on purpose. Add some widgets or whatever. I don't care!


Stay tuned for v1.1 release, Updates coming very soon! Plugin support, Publish options, and tweeks available soon! For now check out the admin to get a sneak peak.
