The origin of the name

Typecho is composed of two words, type and echo, from the brainstorming of the development team.

Type, there is the meaning of typing. Blog is a platform for us to express ourselves on the Internet by typing. Echo, which means echo, feedback and resonance, is also the most common and important function in PHP. I believe that most PHP enthusiasts are from echo'Hello, world!, and start their own PHP programming.

The name indicates that Typecho is a blog program. It is issued under the license of GPL version 2. Based on PHP (PHP5 version above), it can be run on various platforms and support multiple databases (Mysql, PostgreSQL, SQLite).

Why develop Typecho

It comes from the cleanliness and fanaticism of the development team at the spiritual level. Most of the time we use blog programs, we just send out a few paragraphs, paste a few pictures, do not need sophisticated and complex systems, and need a simple and fast blog platform. In the popular open source program, we rarely meet our requirements, so we decided to develop a character blog program by ourselves and distribute it with open source protocol.

Several people in the development team are IT practitioners who benefit greatly from the open source world in the process of growing up. This project is also a reward for our open source.
