NovaLet: More simple blogging

Category: Showcase

NovaLet is a new blogging service that aims to be even simpler than Vox.

It isn’t quite open to the public yet, but already features:

  • Create, Edit and Delete categories instantly.
  • Create, Edit and Delete Links instantly.
  • Create, Edit and Delete static Pages.
  • Create, Edit and Delete Blog Posts under a certain category.
  • Update, Add and Delete images on posts (You can also add YouTube and GoogleVid on Expanded posts, more services will be added of cause).
  • Create, Edit and Delete comments on a blog post.
  • Categories, Links or Pages on the header can be reordered by clicking on the green icon on the header.
  • RSS for the blog and RSS for every category.
  • Searcher
  • MetaWeblog API
  • Url Rewrite
  • Pinging
  • XSS (Cross Site Scripting) Secure
  • Domain mapping (NovaLet accounts can be hooked to any domain)
  • Localisation (Right now it only supports English but hoping to support other languages in the future. The entire system is localised, including the JS errors.)
  • Good Performance (It performance even better when you are logged off. The current NovaLet beta is running on a weak celeron server with 512MB and MS SQL Express 2005).
  • Cross browser, so far it perfectly runs on all these browsers that I have test it on (IE, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Camino).

Looks pretty nice, but (obviously) I need to try it before I can say any more… unless this has the media integration that Vox has (via Flickr, YouTube, etc) then I doubt this will be better than Vox, in my opinion at least.

Very cool, is it Ajax based, in the admin that is? From a quick overview of the site, looks like a typical blog, but what I want to see is the administration. Looking at the screenshot above, it looks to be very, very, simple and easy usability.

The whole thing is Ajax-d … and right now, it’s VERY simple, almost to the point of being too simple.

As for Vox, sure it’s easier to use than Vox, but it has about 1/10th of the features that Vox offers.

Basically right now you can add categories, add a page (like About me, etc), add a new post, and add links …that’s about it. Perhaps their is plenty of new features to come, but they definitely are not their right now.

This looks great. ANy idea when it will be released? Also I ran across this other extremely simple blogging service. It had just images & text in the middle & that was it. no comments, links, or anything. I forgot the name though. Any idea what this was??

What is the current status of Novalet? I started enthousiasticaly as I had registered as a user and then – after a few weeks – I got cut off. Just like that, no notifcation, nothing …
It really is a neat tool, but I’m still unable to use it now … so what is going on there? Even the Novalet Blog is gone these days … ?
