README

Blot
----

A blogging platform with no interface. Blot turns a folder into a blog. The point of all this — the reason Blot exists — is so you can use your favorite tools to create whatever you publish.

I recommend waiting until I write a guide before attempting to run Blot on your own server. Eventually I will refactor the code such that Blot can be installed quickly and simply. I will write the neccessary documentation and sell Blot at a reasonable price to self-hosters, with an option to pay more for support. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions: support@blot.im


Overview
--------

Here is an illustration of Blot's structure:

                                 |   can't be on disk for Blot. |
                                 |                              |
                                 +------------------------------+


The Node.js server (Blot) itself is responsible for a small crew of child processes which handle things like image minification and document conversion.
