PyBlosxom Hacks and Plugins

PyBlosxom is a lightweight weblog system written in Python and it is the software that I use to run my own weblog, copyrighteous. It originally started out as a Python clone of Blosxom. While it has diverged and improved — "blossomed" if you will — with time, the basic ideas behind PyBlosxom (e.g., simplicity, use of the filesystem as a database) have remained central.

PyBlosxom is extremely modular and easily extensible. In my course of using the software, I have submitted a number of patches to PyBlosxom and written a variety of plugins and extensions. Several of these can be found in the PyBlosxom Plugin Registry but the canonical home of all of them is this page.

If you you use or try any of these have a patch, improvement, suggestion, question, or a bug you'd like to tell me about, feel free to email me at or contact me using any of the ways mentioned on my contact page.
