As a first part in a series of experiments on light-weight markup languages (e.g. for blogs, wilkis, presentations etc) I have installed the PyBlosxom blogging tool. It tool a few minutes more than the 10 minutes claimed in the user guide. But it’s working now. For future reference the URL (or should that be URI) is http://tinyurl.com/2gyqvx. An advantage of PyBlosxom (and Perl Blosxom that inspired it) is that the blog entries are just text files which can be edited in any text editor and kept under version control. A rich family of plug-ins allows various transformations to take place when the blog is rendered by the pyblosxom.cgi script. These include reStructuredText, textile, markdown, wikitext, etc.
