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.

Sandbox is a personal Web site package that provides you with a blog, image gallery, file download area, and the ability to create miscellaneous custom Web pages. Many other blog/Web site packages like Wordpress only do one thing. Most blog packages do not also provide a good image gallery or a good downloads module. You can get these things in separate packages, but integrating them into one site is difficult, involving code bridges and incompatible skinning systems. Sandbox aims to have all of these things integrated into one package.
