@developer: There also is a tiny, fast, portable, open source Unix webserver at www.acme.com/software/thttpd/!

@developer: There also is an open source MySQL database management GUI (www.mludi.net/YourSQL). For some Mac specific command line tools (lsmac) see osxutils.sf.net (perhaps also see xmlstar.sf.net). Keep on going with this great app (which is also excellent for learning BASH basics)!

Is it possible to connect nanoblogger to a SQL/PostgreSQL database by using DataWerkz (www.uwerkz.com)?

For more complex website management tasks see the macroprocessor m4 (I think there is an OS X version listed at osx.hyperjeff.net/Apps.

OMG! I love this app.
I have never been very inclined to "blog" (as my life is simply TOO fascinating to just give away for free).
I am, however, a fan of the command line and specifically of BASH (cause I kinda know it, no other good reason). I figured I would try this puppy out. I was floored! This collection of standard, built in unix apps, stitched together with a shell script, produces a COOL looking blog site. And it is simple to operate (simple if you are at least vaguely familiar with working from the command line AND simple if you know how to edit in vi (well, ok, vi ain't simple but you can change the editor to pico and pico is simple enough for my grandmother's deceased poodle to operate).

You like blogging? Never done it before but have vaguely considered it? Try nanoblogger!

p.s. only downside is that you would not be able to post blogs from afar without remote access to your Mac (of course, with a little basic php you could put together a simple web based interface that would let you do just that).

For a pico alternative see www.nano-editor.org! And I think I have somewhere read that the fine Cocoa text editor smultron.sf.net can be used as a plugin for Terminal.app.
