Banjo is a blogging application with bells and whistles, written using the Django framework. It supports caching and skinning. It is suitable for any blog, but is most appropriate for integration into an existing Django application, such as a Satchmo store or a forum. It supports multiple blogs from one installation, each with their own skin. The blogs can be served from unique domain names, from subdirectories, or from subdomains with equal ease, without special configuration. Trackback and Pingback are supported and you can use standard blogging tools such as Ecto, Mars Edit, or ScribeFire to post to the blog.
Blite is a lightweight blog application with a focus on simplicity and ease of use. It provides the essential features of a blog, including categories, archives, and comments. It can easily be themed by modifying a stylesheet and a few simple templates. Blite pages are fast-loading and validate as HTML 4.01. Comment spam is filtered to a spambox (by the use of blogspam.net), where it can be reviewed and deleted (or published). Blite requires PHP 5.3 (or later) with the sqlite extension, and the xmlrpc extension for comment spam filtering.
