Simple date and category-driven Web publishing system
Beacon is a web-based publishing system that looks like a blog, but behaves like a wiki.
This package has been decommissioned. This page has been left for the sake of posterity.
NB. Not to be confused with beacon, an Emacs minor-mode that highlights the cursor whenever the window scrolls.
