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.
From a technical perspective: 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.
We've created Bolt for developers who need a tool to create websites in an easy and straightforward way, while at the same time it should be pleasant to use for content-editors, without getting in the way at any time. To be more specific:
Bolt comes with thorough online documentation for developers, and soon there will also be an extensive user manual for endusers. For support question we've set up a forum, while Issues and bugs can be posted on our Github Issue tracker. If you'd like to help develop Bolt, just fork it and code along. You can also follow @BoltCM on twitter and read the latest news.
The Bolt project is backed by Two Kings, a webdevelopment firm based in the Netherlands. If your company needs commercial support for Bolt projects, please contact email@example.com.
