We'll release the first version of our self-hosted blog software as an alpha, to get everything out there and start collecting feedback on it as early as possible. This worked well with Write.as, the hosted version.
Goals: Start with the bare-minimum. Add only what we find is truly necessary. Do we really need themes, plugins, comments? We'll put this out into the world and learn the answers, instead of building on conjecture.
- Manual install and database upgrade
- Single user configuration
- Writing / editing done through web client only [based on existing editor]
- Minimal post management UI [based on existing UI]
