To better understand what Grav is and how it can help you as your website's CMS please read below an in depth presentation from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:


Grav is a free software, self-hosted content management system (CMS) written in the PHP programming language and based on the Symfony web application framework. It uses a flat file database for both backend and frontend.

Grav is designed to have a shallow learning curve, and to be easy to set up. The focus of Grav is speed and simplicity, rather than an abundance of built-in features that come at the expense of complexity.

The name Grav is just a shortened version of the word "gravity."

Grav is the most starred PHP CMS on GitHub, with over 11,000 stars.
