Pixie is a downloadable application you install on your own web server that allows you to create, setup and maintain (adding and editing content) your own website. Pixie sits quietly behind your site and is not visible to site visitors. You can login to Pixie via your web browser to work on your site anywhere in the world, the interface is simple and intuitive. If you want to try Pixie please visit the demo site.
Pixie was created with a single vision: that anyone should be able to create and maintain a website... and - more importantly - that it should be an easy and straightforward process, so how are we doing?
The first release of Pixie still isn't as easy as we would like. It still has some technical barriers. Those of you who are unfamiliar with FTP and are unsure of what hosting is, may find setting up Pixie quite difficult. If that sounds like you, we have provided a step by step guide of how to get Pixie installed. If you are still having trouble getting Pixie setup, please ask for help in the forums or contact toggle who offer an installation service for a small fee.
Once Pixie is setup we are sure you will find it a pleasure to use (we do!). For tips and advice on using the interface we have created a PDF user guide.
We are aware that Pixie has plenty of room for improvement, the settings area is quite primitive and block handling is far from perfect. As we continue to develop Pixie we will be looking to make improvements to the whole system, in both the underlying code (it certainly needs it) and the interface. At the same time we are very cautious of adding too much to the system, we want to keep Pixie simple and light.
What plans do we have for the future?
We have lots of plans for Pixie: features, interfaces and lots more great add-ons. The list below is some of the more important features and ideas we would like to implement over the coming years:
