BlogVi - Tailwind Static Blog with Search (Backendless)

by Docsie

See our blog https://www.docsie.io/blog/

👋 Reason for this Project

I tried to setup a static blog for my company, but I quickly found out that it's really difficult to get a nice looking free blog with search and comments without:

  1. ❌ Paying a monthly Subscription for a SaaS commercial Blog
  2. ❌ Hosting a search backend/opensource blog
  3. ❌ Paying for third party search solution

The goal of this project is to be a free static blog:

  1. ✅ That can be hosted on github pages
  2. ✅ That supports search, comments, analytics and custom javascripts out of the box with minimal configuration
  3. ✅ That looks nice and modern and supports beautiful responsive theming with tailwind CSS
  4. ✅ That costs 0 dollars to host and maintain
  5. ✅ Provides it's administrator with a simple workflow to create, approve and publish blog posts from other contributors
  6. ✅ Provides me with a fun side project to contirbute to in my spare time

See example here: www.docsie.io/blog/
