Grav - Build Faster Websites
Super Easy to Use
What is Grav?
Grav is a Fast, Simple, and Flexible file-based Web-platform. There is Zero installation required. Just extract the ZIP archive, and you are already up and running. Although Grav follows principles similar to other flat-file CMS platforms, it has a different design philosophy than most.
The name Grav is just a shortened version of the word Gravity. The shared namespace of our platform and a movie starring Sandra Bullock is pure coincidence! More importantly, gravity is also a fundamental physical principle that describes the forces of attraction between objects. Frankly, the name was chosen as a temporary "codename" for the project, and it just stuck.
Grav is intentionally designed with few requirements. You can easily run Grav on your local computer, as well as 99% of all Web hosting providers. If you have a pen handy, jot down the following Grav system requirements:
Web Server (Apache, Nginx, LiteSpeed, Lightly, IIS, etc.)
PHP 7.3.6 or higher
hmm... that's it really
Grav is built with plain text files for your content. There is no database needed!
