Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
Confucius had it right a long time ago, but we still fall into the same trap today. Jibber strives to take that quote to heart and keep things simple instead of making them overly complicated. Blogging is about the content, and Jibber tries to put as few levels as possible between a writer and his/her readers.
Jibber, quite simply, is an open source blogging engine written using the Ruby on Rails framework with the explicit goal of allowing a blogger a simple way to post their content without having to fool around with an unlimited number of options or configuration. Jibber is not extensible, it is not highly configurable, and it is probably not for you. However, it is simple and easy to use.
