Parenthetical Blognir

Parenthetical Blognir is a rewrite of Blognir in Guile Scheme. It's not yet complete.


For feature parity with the original Blognir

  • Ability to post "author comments"
  • Password-protected posts
  • Allow-Comments attribute for enabling comments per-post
  • Access log


  • Use SXML for everything, rather than printing HTML directly
  • Alternatively, implement a proper template language
  • Don't hardcode URLs
  • Proper error treatment
  • Replace constants with settings
  • Replace string messages with something localizable


  • Allow some HTML tags in comments. This might be easier to validate with xml->sxml.
