Platform1 is a simple personal blogging platform built by Archie Baer. It uses NodeJS, Express, YAML and NeDB.

To get started, install the dependencies and run the script. This will generate the config file and custom.css. Then open config.yml and change what you please. Make sure to set the password - you use it when creating new posts. You can also set icon links for the homepage, like to social media accounts. The icons use font awesome. When you’re ready, run the server. If you visit the homepage, you’ll notice there won’t be any posts. To create one, visit /new, enter post content, use the password you set earlier, and click the button to post it.

You may want to change the accent colour by going into custom.css and modifying the css variable.
