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 questions, you can post to Stack Overflow using the tag bolt-cms. 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. We also have an IRC channel: #boltcms on freenode.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
