Seems is a tiny personal blogging platform. It gets its name from the initialism CMS, which we all know to mean Content Management System. This is because Seems is, in fact, a simple CMS.
- It's backed by MySQL.
- It's templatable.
- TODO: Write more templates. Currently the only one is my personal site template.
- It automatically generates images.
- Asynchronously via a Beanstalk queue.
- Original, Medium, Small sizes.
- Images are converted to Progressive JPG for better loading.
- Images are stored via a filesystem abstraction.
- Can store locally, in S3, Azure, etc.
- You can create image galleries.
- Upload images to a gallery wall.
- Experimental #selfie mode allows visitors to post #selfies into a special gallery with their webcams.
- Think: a Web 1.0 Guestbook but with a 2k14 spin.
- Content is written in Markdown and rendered out to HTML.
- Post editor is a JS Markdown editor with syntax highlighting, undo/redo, and image insertion.
- There's currently no management interface.
Why would you do this??
I had every intention of running my personal site on this, and then I was sucked into Ghost because it's beautiful and I'm an awful designer, and it natively supports Markdown.
- PHP 5.4
