Typeface was built from the necessity of needing a good well rounded weblog that is feature-full yet nibble enough to take on peak web traffic. There are already various other weblog applications such as "WordPress":http://wordpress.org/ , "MT":http://www.movabletype.org/ , "Typo":http://www.typosphere.org/ , "Blosxom":http://www.blosxom.com/ , and "Angerwhale":http://trac.jrock.us/blog_software . All the above are excellent pieces of software, however, I wanted to take the best ideas of each application and integrate into a single entity - Typeface. Typeface benefits from the vast resources of CPAN and the excellent "Catalyst community":http://www.catalystframework.org/.
