BoidCMS – A Simple, fast, and super extensible CMS

BoidCMS is a free and open-source flat file CMS for building simple websites and blogs in seconds, developed using PHP and JSON as a database.

BoidCMS was meant to be small, and with some abilities the current flat file CMS's can't provide.

BoidCMS is a fork of WonderCMS

BoidCMS has two content types by default.

Post: could be an article/blog post or whatever, it is listed in the homepage as post.

And Page which is a static page that is accessible through link but hidden inside the website, could be added inside article content or in a block such as navigation bar or footer to make it visible.
