SPLOT is a single purpose web site that allows anonymous or public publishing without requiring registration or signing in to contribute (participants choose how much/little to identify themselves). It defies rigid definitions, and may or may not stand for Smallest/Simplest * Possible/Portable * Open/Online * Learning/Living * Tool/Technology.
Most SPLOTs so far are Wordpress child themes; if they use plugins, free ones. Each comes with theme options interface for tailoring sites; makes use of built in post/category/tags features. One GitHub SPLOT exists. See also a collection of more variants at [c splot.tools].
