As the name depicts, this is a very simple script which includes a password protected administrative backend for adding, editing and deleting articles. For editing the text the brilliant widgEditor is utilised for it's lightweight simplicity and effectiveness. Example scripts are included to get you setup quickly. RSS support is included by default.
