éClaircie -- Blog without clouds!

éClaircie is a 100% static blog engine. The main features are:

  • Restructured Text (ReST) syntax

  • multilingual support, including failback language (ex a website with translated articles in French and the other in English)

  • integrated search engine (Google-independent and local!)

  • full multimedia integration:

    • image gallery with miniatures

    • audio player (HTML5)

    • Youtube video (with anti-tracing protection: Youtube is not contacted until the video is played)

    • RSS feed

  • comments by mail

  • multiple themes support (including per-category themes)

  • content generation from Python scripts

  • email obfuscation

  • free software (GNU GPL v3 licence)

  • 100% static, cloud-less computing! With éClaircie, no need to use external services for managing comments (ex Disqus) or search (ex Google search bar). This is better because these external services providing "widgets" raise some concerns related to privacy. In fact, these widgets are often used for tracing users by the enterprises that propose them.

In French, "éclaircie" means "when the weather improves".

If independence, control of your personal data and respect for privacy are importants to you, then éClaircie is for you!
