All maintenance and administration can be performed through your web browser, making Pebble ideal for anybody who is constantly on the move or doesn't have direct access to their host.
Pebble is a blogging platform that is perhaps best known for being a Java EE platform. It is open source, small in size, fast and has a lot of nice features to help you build a great looking site. The setup and install of this system is extremely fast and easy too, which is really nice.
The content for your blog is not stored in a normal database, which some people will like. Instead everything is stored on XML files and then served to your visitors dynamically. This can help users get the performance they want without the need of a database, which some hosting companies don’t allow (InterServer allows databases on all hosting packages). Overall this is a very nice option with a unique way of handling your data.
