SitePoint PHP Blog:
Introduction to Kirby CMS
April 28, 2014 @ 13:48:31

The SitePoint PHP blog has posted a new article introducing you to Kirby, a database-less content management system that's all file based.

Kirby is a lightweight CMS that probably fits somewhere between feature-rich platforms such as Drupal, and static site generators such as Jekyll. What makes Kirby quite different to most CMS's - and closer to Jekyll in the process - is that it has no database. Instead, everything is stored as files; some for configuration, some for content - all in addition to the usual template files, partials and plugins. In this article I'm going to take a look at Kirby, demonstrate how to use it, and assess some of its strengths and weaknesses.

He walks you through the download and installation process and provides a general overview of the structure of the application and how it works. He gets into the specifics of theming the site to match your own look and feel, shows you how to use "kirbytext", a custom extension of Markdown. He also briefly covers plugins, the main panel and some of the pros and cons of using the system.
