A content management system or CMS is a software that facilitates creating, editing, organizing, and publishing content.

What is sitecake?

It is a Simple CMS (Content Managment System) for HTML & PHP Websites.

What kind of features does site cake offer?

Drag & drop everything. With this CMS you can Drag & drop items from anywhere; the website, your desktop, other browser windows, or cloud services like YouTube, Vimeo, Google maps, Twitter, among others.

No template engine required.As i said it is a static CMS that works with plain HTML and PHP pages. No need to learn new templating syntax.

No database needed.This is the most interesting part, Sitecake is flat-file CMS. Text changes are saved to the HTML page, images to the file system. Once editing is finished the website stays static, Just like that.

Lightening speed.In the layman's language I would say it is much faster than a WordPress website. Remember it manages static pages and static websites cached with CDN services load lightning fast. For mobile users faster is better. For Google ranking too.

How to install Sitecake

Nesting of sc-content elements is not supported

Moreso, all you need is a webserver (Apache or NGINX) and PHP 5.6+. In development mode, you can either download Xammp or Wamp.


Back to the point, how can you add sitecake to your project;

Step 1

First, add sc-content class to divs you want editable


 <div class="sc-content">
 <h1>Learning new things is great </h1>
 <p>The world is great. </p>
 <p>Everyone is great. </p>

Step 2

Second, upload Sitecake to the same folder as your website.




Note:You must have an index page (index.html or index.htm or index.php or index.php5)
