Micropub client written in PHP.

A hosted version is available to try at:


  • PHP
  • MySQL or SQLite
  • Composer for further dependency installation


  • Follow the "Web Server Configuration" section
  • Run composer install
  • Copy lib/config.template.php to lib/config.php and adjust it
  • Import schema/mysql.sql (or schema/sqlite.sql)
  • Open the Quill URL in your Browser

Web Server Configuration

Set the document root to the "public" folder of this repo, and ensure all requests are routed through public/index.php if they don't match a file.


server {
  listen       80;

  root /path/to/Quill/public;

  error_log  logs/quill.error.log  notice;

  try_files $uri /index.php?$args;

  location /index.php {
    fastcgi_pass    php-pool;
    fastcgi_index   index.php;
    include fastcgi_params;
    fastcgi_param   SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

Apache .htaccess

An .htaccess file is already located in the public/ folder.


Quill supports a couple of URL GET parameters which can be used to pre-configure it:

  • me: Author URL for auto-sign in
  • dontask: Set to 1 to skip the "Sign In" endpoint status page
  • reply: URL to pre-fill into the "Reply To:" field
