Envoi Project

I have started working on something that I think is interesting.  There aren’t enough flat-file blogging platforms around that support full integration with social media.  I have decided to create my own version of this with the Envoi Project.  This project is currently hosted on GitHub, but will soon have its own website.

The Envoi Project is planned to be a flat-file blog that simultaneously shares your content across all of your social media.  I am also attempting to keep a simple approach to requirements and languages.  I have opted to stick with PHP, JavaScript, and Bootstrap’s CSS.  The only requirement so far is an Apache webserver.  As for the content, Envoi will categorize your posts into 6 different types (text, photo, video, link, quote, file).  I felt that these are the core reasons that people blog, so by creating types, this will help narrow down the social media sharing experience and focus on getting the right content onto the right platform.

The idea is to focus on centralized content sharing.  No matter what type of team or group you are trying to share, you will be able to reach everyone with a single post.

Another huge topic I want to focus on is security.  Since you will be syncing your social media with Envoi, securely storing your credentials is very important.

The project is in an infancy stage at the moment, but I am hoping to gain some traction soon and get a working project released before the end of the year.

If you are interested, follow the project at GitHub.
