Projects / Aether


Aether is a wiki-esque CGI script for creating and editing Web pages and Weblogs via a Web interface. It consists of a single easy-to-install script and uses a simple markup language to lay out pages. Unicode is supported in both page text and URLs. It can produce Atom syndication feeds for each Weblog in a site. A simple revision tracking system allows previous versions of a page to be restored.

          Release Notes: This release included new tags for modifying the style sheet and inserting a table of contents. There were also new options to append to, prepend to, or replace sidebars and page headings. Layout (sidebars, heading, style-sheet, etc) can be specified for a whole site, then overridden for individual pages or subdirectories. Locking was added to prevent simultaneous writing to files.
