What you’ll like about Skrivr:

  • An efficient&responsive theme engine;
  • Clean URLs;
  • Custom domains;
  • Unlimited site traffic.

What you won’t like:

  • Invite only as of now;
  • Confusing start-up;
  • Limited customization options.

Skrivr is, as I famously predicted, just the very beginning of DropBox-based apps, and we can expect many more in the future.

Content Management For Everyone – Directus

Directus is a content management framework that doesn’t focus on coding that much.

directus Content Management For Everyone   Directus

Directus is a “framework” as it requires you to customize content presentation upon installing the CMS; however, this can be done without being familiar to coding.

What you’ll like about Directus:

  • A number of data types for thorough categorization;
  • Built-in media features: audio player, video embedding, etc.;
  • Thorough user management;
  • Unbranded design;
  • Easy theming.

What you won’t like:

  • Few plugins;
  • Documentation could have been better.

Serve Your Content, Where And How You Need It – Osmek

Osmek is a CMS that’s hosted in the cloud. It provides an editing interface and a powerful API for retrieving your content.

Osmek also provides a fancy dashboard that allows you to overlook comments, subscribers, and recent API uses.

Osmek’s API is quite advanced, and it allows developing your site how you want.

The CMS is free if you want to use a single type of content, but the second most basic plan costs $10.

A Powerful And Flexible Blogging Engine – Chyrp

Chyrp is a lightweight, PHP-powered blogging engine that’s easy to extend and maintain.

Chyrp comes with a beautiful default template, and actually has quite a lot of themes for a relatively unknown CMS.

Notable features include: import old posts from WordPress/Tumblr; as well as user management features that really make Chyrp stand out among other smaller CMSes.

The blogging engine is well-documented and seems simple enough to use to at least give it a try.

A Simple And Light CMS – Anchor

Anchor is a relatively new and interesting content management system.

Anchor is interesting as it provides basic, yet highly-customizable functionality set within about 200 kilobytes of code.

A most particular feature is the ability to do custom posts, as you can include any JavaScript and CSS within a post.

The CMS seems to be fast and extendable, so do check this one out if you’re looking for a minimalist CMS.

The Anchor CMS demo is available here, u/p – admin/password.

A Simple And Engaging CMS – Kotti

Kotti is an interesting new content management system that runs on Python.

Kotti is by itself rather simple, as even expected features — like a post archive and date publishing — are missing; however, as the CMS was written with extend-ability in mind, Kotti seems legit for a GitHub fork and some work.

The CMS features an interesting permission system, with user permissions being handed to areas of a website instead of specific actions.

Kotti would likely do well to provide more features out of the box. The CMS still provides a solid starting ground, though.
