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.


Detailed instructions can be found in the official documentation.
