GetSimple really is the simplest content management system (CMS) ever. After seeing so many people amazed by Kirby – a licensed file-based CMS – I started looking for something at least comparable but open-source, and here is GetSimple.
- XML Based
We don’t use mySQL to store our information, but instead depend the simplicity of XML. By utilizing XML, we are able stay away from introducing an extra layer of slowness and complexity associated with connecting to a mySQL database. Because GetSimple was built specifically for the small-site market, we feel this is the absolutely best option for data storage.
- You can “Undo” Almost Everything
This feature was based off an eye-opening AListApart article explaining how warning messages never work as planned. Because of this, we’ve included “undo” into almost every action you can take on the site, giving you peace-of-mind for when you make those inevitable stupid mistakes.
Now, I’ll play with it for a small personal project I have in mind, and I’ll tell you more comming soon.
Have you already try it?
