"After writing my entry on CMS and blog software that doesn't require a database, one of the commenters recommended FlatPress.

"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."
