Chyrp is a lightweight blogging engine, written in PHP, working with SQLite and MySQL. It is possible to create different types of posts, e.g. Text, Video, Photo, Link and Quote. It looks like a good open-source alternative for Tumblr.
I currently try out Chyrp, thinking about to replace my private Wordpress blog. The recent Chyrp version includes an option to import content from the Wordpress-XML export file. But it didn’t work for exports from Wordpress.com-Blogs and the default import creates only Text posts in Chyrp, regardless of the post type of the original Wordpress data. So I fixed it and added an additional chyrp module that enables the import of types posts. My Wordpress branch for Chyrp improves:
Unknown post types are still imported as text feather in Chryp, e.g. gallery posts in Wordpress. Currently it is not possible to import them as Photo posts in Chyrp because the photo feather only allows one image per post.
