Simplecomic

Another new-ish release, this time a PHP webcomic content management system called simplecomic.

Features:

  • Multiple comics per day
  • Schedule posting of comics in advance
  • Masking of comic filenames so scheduled comics can’t be easily found
  • Comic descriptions, alt text, and transcripts
  • Optional chapter divisions for comics
  • “Rants” as a lightweight blog, with scheduled posting
  • Theme system
  • Static pages
  • Support for the frontpage showing the first comic from the most recent day with comics, to allow posting of “issues”

I wrote it for a friend who wanted to start her own webcomic and wasn’t happy with the existing options in the field of webcomic CMSes.

You can see an example here. It’s a dead webcomic that I happen to be hosting for sentimental reasons. Ignore the Comic Sans… it’s also there for sentimental reasons. 😛

Get it on github.
