What is Chyrp Lite?
Chyrp Lite makes it possible to host a blog on your own web server with minimal fuss. You can have a traditional blog, a tumbleblog, or you can add oodles of customisation and build a web publishing platform with blogging features on the side.
With a flexible system of Feathers and Pages, you can make your website whatever you want it to be. Feathers enable different types of blog content – you can restrict yourself to absolute textual purity, or you can create a multimedia rainbow. Pages let you publish articles separate from your blog content – be it a simple colophon or a hierarchy of multiple pages, optionally including a homepage that your visitors will see when they first arrive at your website.
You get three beautiful blog themes and a friendly administration console, all fully navigable on a broad range of devices, thanks to the power of responsive HTML5. Semantic markup and comprehensive ARIA labelling ensure your blog will be accessible to visitors who use assistive technologies.

Said about Chyrp Lite as an alternative
It needs a database, but apart from that, I love Chyrp Lite, and I think it is a good alternative to Bludit, as it is also slim and easy to use.
In deed a good alternative. GetSimple CMS and Chyrp Lite are both easy to use and slim. However, Chyrp Lite requires a database connection. Anyway, I can really say that I have never had any problems with Chypr Lite.

Wonderfully simple and slim blogging system. As far as I can see, it has all of the most important features that the more famous and well-known blog systems like WordPress or Serendipity have. But it is not overloaded. It has not such a terrible editor like WordPress’ Gutenberg, but a very minimalistic Markdown editor, which won't distract you from writing.
The installation is easy and done in no time (you will need a MySQL or SQLite database), the updates works flawlessly, and the backend is quite intuitive to use.
There are only a few things which should be mentioned: Seemingly, scheduled publishing is not possible, and categories and comments must be activated initially.
In short, I really like this blog system because of its simplicity and low complexity.
