My website works well for me, but I've been thinking a lot about re-writing it from the ground up. The code is a mess, hastily thrown together when I was wicked excited to dive headlong into the indieweb and micro.blog as fast as possible. Haven't made or found the time to do the re-write yet, but I've got plenty of ideas. The core concepts will remain the same, but I'm hoping to make something a bot more reusable — useful for other folks. Anyone have thoughts about what they're looking for in a lightweight, indieweb-first CMS?
