A missed opportunity

Choosing a Blogging Package for Students by Scot Hacker (Aug. 23, 2002). Unfortunately Antville is not mentioned although it is the best choice. (And I know what I'm talking about.)

PS: I did sent him a private mail pointing him towards Antville.

how to set up your own antville server

There are two possibilities to get antville: either you download the archive (available in .tar.gz or .zip-flavours) or you check out antville from the CVS of helma.

Stable versions of antville are always available as downloadable archives. Simply download, unpack and move the application into the apps-directory of your helma-installation.

To get the latest development version you will have to use cvs (which isn't that hard as it might sound). If you have a cvs-client, simply do the following:

cvs -d \
:pserver:anonymous@adele.helma.org:/opt/cvs/apps \
login

(when prompted for the password, simply hit the "Enter"-key - there's no password for anonymous access to cvs).

then, type in the following to checkout the latest version of antville:

cvs -d \
:pserver:anonymous@adele.helma.org:/opt/cvs/apps \
checkout antville

When you're finished, log out with the following command:

cvs -d \
:pserver:anonymous@adele.helma.org:/opt/cvs/apps \
logout

However you got antville, there should be a readme-file included telling you how to configure the application.

Features of antville

  • simple and fast creation of weblogs (it takes just two clicks!)
  • easy upload of images (including resizing and automatic creation of thumbnails) and any other data (called "goodies", i.e. sounds, videos, pdf or word files ...). Both images and goodies are organized in seperate pools for easy maintenance. Uploaded images and goodies can be embedded in layouts, stories or comments.
  • easy creation of stories (including preview of offline stories) plus the ability to structure contents by assigning them to custom definable "topics" and linking them together using a wiki-like syntax
  • fulltext search (searches in both stories and comments)
  • a fully customizeable set of "skins" (which are sort of layout snippets) that enables weblog-owners to completely change design and structure, plus
  • a rich set of macros (which are special tags you can embed in skins or content-elements)
  • easy-to-create polls that can be embedded either in stories or somewhere in a skin
  • RSS-feeds for all hosted weblogs plus a RSS-formatted list of weblogs (sorted by their last update)
  • Access- and referrer-logging
  • multiple authors per weblog plus the ability for weblog-owners to add other users to the list of members and to define their permissions (currently there are four predefined roles: subscriber, contributor, content manager and admin).
  • user-registration and weblog-subscription (currently without mail notification)
  • a set of defineable preferences (including language and country, enabling or disabling weblog-archive, color-definitions etc.)
  • calendar- or page-based navigation (or both)
  • automatic conversion of pasted urls into links

For more information have a look at macros.antville.org (in progress) or help.antville.org
