folder2blog is a minimalist blog engine based on plain text. You maintain a folder of text files, one for each article, and folder2blog dynamically maps it to blog-ish HTML/RSS2 output. Comments are appended to each text file. Managing articles/comments now becomes creating or editing text files. For example, all you do is edit a local folder of plain text files and sync it with the server, manually or using tools such as rsync, over SSH or FTP. The encoding may be anything (UTF-8 by default). The HTML formatter is any external program, such as markdown, that may act as a pipe. The owner receives notification email for each comment. There is basic spam protection.
