"After writing my entry on CMS and blog software that doesn't
require a database, one of the commenters recommended
"It's not just the name (a play on WordPress, on the off-off-off
chance that you missed that particular bit of wordplay). OK, a lot
of it is the name. By way of explanation, it's called FlatPress
because it stores its data in "flat" files and not in a database,
such as the MySQL that powers the back end of WordPress and
innumerable other content-management platforms.
"But it turns out that FlatPress is a very easy-to-install
blogging platform that uses PHP, stores the entries in the
aforementioned flat files, runs extremely fast, takes up very
little disk space (1.9 MB after the files are uncompressed, 508 KB
before you unpack it) and is refreshingly simple."
