Flat CMS is CMS which doesn’t use database. So the file is saved as text file. Here is some Flat CMS based on PHP which i have found which support MarkDown Format :
- Grav : It is modern flat file CMS which is good , I just explore this a little . I’m still searching how to do pagination. And the file is big about >4 MB without admin and 15 MB for admin (in zip file) . So it’s not suitable for my web hosting
- PicoCMS : another flat CMS. It’s good but not found yet about pagination yet for many text files
- HTMLy : I think it’s the most suitable for my website. It support pagination and easy to make theme. It has twentyeleven wordpress theme too. Only one problem about handling $date_format not initialize. So i just add $date_format = “%d %M %Y”; if there is error in the code.
So if you want to use Flat CMS in PHP. My suggestion is using HTMLy
