There has been an influx of content management systems especially for PHP. A lot of them have been too large or too complex for simple websites.

Bolt is a tool for Content Management, which strives to be as simple and straightforward as possible. It is quick to set up, easy to configure, uses elegant templates, and above all: It’s a joy to use. Bolt is created using modern Open Source libraries, and is best suited to build sites in HTML5, with modern markup.

Basically, there are three groups of users we’ve created Bolt for:

  • End users (read ‘editors’) that want to focus on producing and editing content, and not on clicking buttons in the CMS.
  • Front-end designers and developers who like to write clean markup, and who want to build websites where the CMS doesn’t dictate what the templates or site should look like.
  • Developers who need a system that’s easy to set up and configure, that’s easy to manage and maintain, but is also flexible and versatile.

Requirements: PHP 5.3+
