Why did you develop GuppY?

Two main reasons lead me to develop GuppY. I wanted a small portal for my own personal web site (aldweb Site) that would allow:

- a native bilingual management of the content, the user only having to choose his language when getting on the site. Only Minicontent answered this requirement... but it required the installation of a MySQL database and few functionalities were available apart from the standard CMS (Content Management System).

- a simple script based solution that would not require a database server to run. I then looked at Portix and Phortail. The first one, Portix, is indevelopment but it is starting to become quite complex and, last I heard, it now comes with user management which I did not need. The second one, Phortail, was much more simple, even too basic, but it was healthy. Therefore, it was a source of inspiration for my own development of GuppY.

So, at the end, I decided to write my own script based solution, with the idea of sharing it with everybody that would be interested, so I tried to get it to be as "user friendly" as I could. And this is how GuppY was born
