Ignition is developed the way I want it or the way I need it to be built for my needs. I know that this won't be the platform that will fulfill the needs of many but maybe a few would find it useful. I'm open to any ideas about how to develop this farther. That being said...

Ignition is a non-bloated, flat file blogging system.

More info may be available in the Docs-Wiki

These screenshots should give you a first impression how Ignition looks like. Remember: The look of many Weblogs can be changed by stylesheets or templates so these are only examples.

Sorry no screenshots for Ignition available, yet.
