Hmmm. What languages do you know? I would recommend checking out this answer I made to someone else.

@a5rocks I know Python, PHP and a bit of JS

@webmunchster Hmmm... Have you looked at Flask before? That's what I would go with.

@a5rocks Well, I have never heard of that, but Repl has a PHP Server that I could use... I just don't want to transport all of the files

@webmunchster I recommend learning Flask + Jinja2 Templating. I personally think it's the most beginner friendly, and would probably be a good starting place for you to learn the high level concepts like login and posts, etc.

BTW, you are going to need a database, and you can find a free 500mb one on mongodb's site called "atlas"
