Reevio - Bringing Blogging to Tent

Reevio is a self-hosted blogging platform based on the Tent protocol that uses Tent's Essay post-types to share your content with the world.


Reevio is a blog-front end that anybody can download and install on their server. Reevio allows you to blog via your Tent server; it displays the Essay posts from your Tent server (for example, ^ or ^ in a blog format so that anybody (permissions permitting) can read them with ease; it also has a single-Essay view so your readers can focus on just one post. Reevio also provides your readers an RSS feed for your Essay posts, as well as details from your profile and a stream of your latest status posts in the sidebar and on the profile page.

Change the style

If you want to change the style of Reevio, the easiest way to do that is to change the things in css/light.css because all the tags, classes and ids used in Reevio can be seen and edited there. There's only one thing you have to remember: By default, Reevio uses css/light.min.css to make the page load even faster, so all the changes you do to light.css won't be displayed anywhere. If you want to change your style, open views/Core/layout.twig and change the source from the stylesheet from css/light.min.css to css/light.css. If you want to use a minified stylesheet with your changes after that again, I recommend you to use Smaller on your Mac and change the source from the stylesheet on layout.twig back again.
