The trivialblog software

I’ve written the software running this blog myself, in Bash; in fact it’s mostly a simple combination of GNU command-line utilities, producing completely static HTML. Texinfo renders the post source text into HTML; my scripts generate indices, links and other minor things. I will probably add a PDF export feature later.

I’ve put together the software very quickly, for myself; the source is crude and there’s no documentation, but since I guess somebody might want a copy anyway I’m publicly releasing it.

trivialblog is free software, released under the GNU GPL version 3 or later. Most icons were not drawn by me and have a different license; all of them are at least freely redistributable. Please see the file icons/licenses for details.

You are welcome to use, share and change trivialblog, but there’s absolutely no warranty.
