MDWeb began out of my need for a framework to host a site for my personal projects called lapinlabs.com. Over the past four years I went through the following iterations:
Started building a site in Python, Django and Django-CMS. This iteration was never completed.
Started over again, this time using PHP and Drupal. This iteration was never completed.
Started over again, this time using PHP and the Pico framework. I completed a basic version of this iteration but there were some issues I found with the Pico framework. Despite the issues I realized that the project was onto something. I decided to try a Markdown-based framework of my own.
Started over again, this time building my own Markdown framework on top of Python and Flask. So far so good...
That brings us to the present. My projects site is now hosted on MDWeb (lapinlabs.com)[http://lapinlabs.com] and I consider my journey complete. I have opensourced the framework and hope others find it useful.
