What is Firedrop2 ?

Firedrop2 is a cross-platform blogging tool written in Python. It keeps
your blog source files on your computer, making it a clientside tool.
This means you control your blog, and can easily move it from one
server to another, with no risk of losing data. It also means you can
manage your blog offline.

It is fully open source, and has all the features you expect from a
modern blogging program :

* RSS feed generation
* Categories
* Automatic archive generation
* A powerful set of plugins, including spell checker and emailer
* Entries can be made in text, HTML, ReST, textile or sextile markup
* HTML templating system and macros for all sorts of tricks
* Built in FTP capability for uploading your blog to a server
* Because it's written in Python, it is easy to extend Firedrop or
create new plugins for it
