Bolt CMS: Simple & Straightforward Content Management

Posted · Category: Framework, MIT License

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.

Bolt is written in PHP, and uses either SQLite, MySQL or PostgreSQL as a database. It’s built upon the Silex framework together with a number of Symfony components and other libraries. Bolt is released under the open source MIT-license.

  • I love this CMS it’s developed under Silex framework. So we can create extensions easily.

    We have problems regularly with Bolt CMS. Doing simple things like saving ‘articles’ or ‘blog posts’, we get a screen refresh and all the data is gone and not saved to the database. Sometimes it takes 4 or 5 times going through the same process to get one to ‘save’ and update properly. Frustrating CMS.
