Create your account with Public-Key Cryptography

We don't want your email address.

To get started, simply ssh into our content management system:

ssh new@prose.sh
note: new is a special username that will always send you to account creation, even with multiple accounts associated with your key-pair.
note: getting permission denied? read this

After that, just set a username and you're ready to start writing! When you SSH again, use your username that you set in the CMS.

You control the source files

Create posts using your favorite editor in plain text files.

~/blog/hello-world.md
# hello world!

This is my first blog post.

Publish your posts with one command

When your post is ready to be published, copy the file to our server with a familiar command:

scp ~/blog/*.md prose.sh:/

We'll either create or update the posts for you.

Terminal workflow without installation

Since we are leveraging tools you already have on your computer (ssh and scp), there is nothing to install.

This provides the convenience of a web app, but from inside your terminal!

Features

Philosophy

The goal of this blogging platform is to make it simple to use the tools you love to write and publish your thoughts. There is no installation, signup is as easy as SSH'ing into our CMS, and publishing content is as easy as copying files to our server.
