Rawdog

Joey Hess mentions the Rawdog aggregator, which is for setting up Planet-style sites. I normally use spycyroll for this (that’s what Planet Wolves uses, for example) because the idea of requiring a database to do this is just brain dead. It is. Don’t deny it. However, I think I might start using rawdog for that purpose in the future. First, it looks maintained. Secondly, Adam Sampson, the hacker who built it, wrote a plugin for it to use Vellum templates! Cor. Every now and again I see Vellum pop up somewhere; I think its plugin design might have been influenced by Vellum’s, too, which is really cool. Nice work, Adam, anyway.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
