Welcome to Flounder!

About

Flounder is an ultra-lightweight platform for making and sharing small websites. It consists of two components: the "my site" page, where you can edit your pages and upload small files, and the home page, where you can see other users' pages. Flounder is bare-bones simple. If you're looking for a place to start, maybe create a journal.gmi file where you can blog your thoughts. Any time you update it, it'll be pushed to the top of the home page.


You can get started by editing this page or uploading any file less than 32KB in size. Your index.gmi file will be visible at <your-name>.flounder.online

In a Station of the Metro
by Ezra Pound

The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.

You can use this to create text-based art, like so:

To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
