Chyrp is a blogging engine designed to be very lightweight while retaining functionality. It is powered by PHP and has very powerful theme and extension engines, so you can personalize it however you want. The code is well-documented, and it has a very strong structure that's loosely based on the MVC design pattern.
Chyrp is a content management system that is designed primarily for making simple blogs. It has been around since 2007 and still gets updated from time to time. It is an open source system and is built on PHP. Right out of the box it is fairly limited in its features, which is done intentionally since it is trying to be a ‘lightweight’ system. It does have a very nice plugin and theme engine built in, however, so you can customize the platform as you see fit. There are a decent number of plugins and themes released for this system as well. Of course, not as many as you might find with WordPress or other big name options, but enough to have pretty much everything you may want.
