[Mono-list] Planning a simple blog engine for Mono

Not sure how useful it'd be to you, but I wrote one for personal use
(although the code is integrated with the code for the rest of my site,
it's not a separate blogging system). I used:

   - ASP.NET <http://asp.net/> MVC 4 with Razor 2 and its built-in CSS and
   JS minification (WebGrease)
   - ServiceStack
OrmLite<https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack.OrmLite> with
   MySql.Data for the data access layer
   - SimpleInjector <http://simpleinjector.codeplex.com/> for IoC /
   Dependency injection
   - DotLESS <http://www.dotlesscss.org/> for CSS preprocessing
   - ELMAH <http://code.google.com/p/elmah/> for error logging
   - MiniProfiler <http://miniprofiler.com/> for performance profiling
   - T4MVC <http://t4mvc.codeplex.com/>

The live version is at http://dan.cx/blog. It's running on Mono 3.0.2 on
Debian Linux. The code is available at https://github.com/Daniel15/Website

As I only created it for personal use, I don't have enough free time to do
things like proper documentation, installation wizards and a nice-looking
administration section. But feel free to take any of the code if you find
it useful. There's really not that much code in it but I think the code
that is there is pretty clean.

I also know of FunnelWeb <http://www.funnelweblog.com/> which is a blogging
engine built on ASP.NET MVC 3.  I haven't tested compatibility on Mono and
its database scripts are only built with SQL Server in mind (so they won't
work properly on MySQL or PostgreSQL). See
