Aegea, the blogging engine

An engine is a program that runs on the blogger’s website. It provides the writing tools to the author, shows the posts to the readers and lets them write comments.

Medium.com is simpler, but they can shut down and take all your posts offline. With an engine, the blog runs on your own website and you have access to the files and the database.

Write

Write whenever you have an idea. All features are accessible on a phone. If a post requires thoughtful editing, use Drafts to work on it as much as needed:

Typography improves automatically:

In editor

The song "Hotel "California""
- it's great!

As published

The song Quotes and apostrophes adjust according to depthHotel California’” —Hyphens become dashes
and don’t wrap

its great!

The design is very text-focused. The line heights, spacings, margins and heading sizes are meticulously adjusted.

The mood of the text remains neutral: the layout will work well for a travel report, a scientific paper or a love story.

Show

Drag a bunch of photos onto the editor, add captions and publish an article:

Spanish state graphic design

Pictures

Put pictures one after
another or make
a flickable gallery

Video

A YouTube or Vimeo
link automatically
turns into a video

Music

Drag an audio file
onto the editor or link
from an external server

Code

Eighteen programming languages get automatic syntax highlighting

Discuss

The number of new comments appears in the top right corner, so you don’t need to go through each note to make sure you’ve read them all:

Sharing buttons include Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, Pinterest, and VK

The truth about music sales

Author in power

Enable comments only when they add value. Or only in fresh posts. Highlight the best and remove the worst in one click. Changed your mind? There’s Undo.

Connected

Readers can subscribe to any discussion by email or RSS. When you reply to a comment, its author gets an email notification in any case.

Organize

Aegea helps professionals talk about their business: show the work, publish lessons and tutorials. Authors connect the posts with tags, make tables of contents of important topics, set arbitrary URLs for the posts.

Organise or reorganise your posts at any time. If you change URLs, the old ones get redirects automatically. When the posts are not organised well, the full-text search will help.
