so how do it work?

We really want to thank everyone who has taken the time to check out tiny; we are working on all kinds of improvements for the upcoming 2.0 version of the app, and any feedback you can send our way will definitely help guide our fevered efforts.

We're also working on putting more support materials together, such as a FAQ and more detailed install instructions. In the meantime, however, the README file should get you where you need to go. We're also standing by to address any questions or comments you might have. Any questions you DO ask will help us figure out what needs to go in the documentation, so everybody will end up benefiting.

One issue we are aware of is the challenge some folks are having with the download. If you hit the download link, you're confronted with a fairly daunting list of links. This is because tiny is meant to be downloaded using a Subversion client, the idea being that this way it's easy for everyone to stay up-to-date. Starting with the next version of the app, we will also offer a .zip or other archive, but the meantime you can either grab one of the free Subversion clients or just hit the download link and grab all the folders and their contents. If there's anything we can do to help, please drop us a line. Thanks!

tiny is go

So we finally put a page for tiny out on the interweb -- http://tiny.ubermondo.com is now ready to amuse you.

Tiny is a lightweight CMS ideal for managing simple websites for which a more full-featured system would be overkill. It's ideal for a brochure-type site where you want to be able to hand the keys over to somebody else without fear of them blowing everything up.

It's also a great choice for designers who want to work some CSS mojo but don't want to mess with code, or for developers who want to throw a CSS template on a website and not have to deal with it.

If you're in a hurry, you can also hit the Subversion repository directly. Please let us know how it goes.
