Projects / Addendat


Addendat is a blogging program that can accept updates from either a CGI interface or a shell interface. Additions are stored as HTML, so you can edit both entries and design in any ordinary text editor. It is configured using a simple HTML-like config file format and supports multiple blogs, even on the same page. It does not require Java or JavaScript and can publicize additions on a central hub, making it easy for Web users to find recently-updated blogs. It supports comments and archiving, can post entries to other CGIs, and features configurable comment spam countermeasures.
