This library implements a simple but highly extensible plugin blogging system for Hunchentoot.

It uses its own custom handler to add routes but but you can still use hunchentoots define-easy-handler.

This is designed to be used with Sly/SLIME's remote connection ability, when you want to add a new entry you would open your ssh tunnel, connect with sly/slime and then compile your new entry straight into the source written on your own machine. Ofcourse you could use a makefile so that you can just deploy the image anywhere with all of your previous posts ready to go.

CL-BLOGGY is in use with its default theme @my blog

README needs a rewrite.

if you want to try it, clone the repo to quicklisp/local-projects, register local projects
