Textpattern is still alive!

THE SHOCK. I thought it was dead 😆

If you don’t know wtf is this, here’s brief introduction to Textpattern from Wikipedia:

Textpattern is an open source content management system originally developed by Dean Allen. While it is often listed among weblogging tools, its aim is to be a high-quality general-purpose content management system suitable for deployment in many contexts. Textpattern is written in PHP using a MySQL database backend, and versions from “gamma” 1.19 through 4.0.x are distributed under the GNU General Public License; however, future versions beginning with 4.1 will be distributed under the BSD license[1]. The current stable version is Textpattern 4.0.7


Basically it’s yet-another-CMS. Since I like experimenting with various CMS, this one hit my interest several months ago. It kinda turned me off though since it’s not easy to extend (plugins/skins wise – both find and usage).

What’s special about this? It uses Textile and guess what, it’s used by Neko Nyan Liberation 😆

Maybe I’ll try this again someday…

29MB audio player

I lied, it's more than 29MB

Okay, it’s not the audio (media) player but the dependency. But hey, foobar2000 can be installed on a fresh Windows XP (and above) install without any extra addition with 2MB installer. Or if you prefer Winamp, it only weighs 10MB.

And the dependency (freepats), um, why does an audio (media) player need synthesizer?

Note that I won’t use the video player functionality since I doubt it supports .ass (or does it? AFAIK the only media player that kinda-properly support it is mplayer and its frontends)
