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.
