Helma and Antville

Helma is a application server where you write Javascript instead of Java code. You can glue Java APIs exposed as objects in Javascript. It has skinning support and macros in templates. To get Antville running it was a matter of downloading the 3MB or so package and just running the script. Configuration was straight forward and comes with a lightweight database. Maybe one of the first tools that needs to be written is a migration tool. Scrape away! Then maybe Reptile. I'm not sure, I've still got to check out the many other blogging tools.
