best php-based cms/tech choice
16 projects | reddit.com/r/PHP | 28 Dec 2022
Another area of CMS Systems are Flat File System based CMS which I did last time not hear a lot around but there was a lot of noice in the past from Kirby CMS and Grav CMS. Instead of a database they store all there data inside files and I mostly saw more for simpler website build with it where not specific security releated user context based content where used.
Learning curve for Joomla and Drupal
3 projects | reddit.com/r/webdev | 15 Nov 2022
I would recommend Grav or Kirby (if your site is less than 50 pages) or Craft if your site is larger than that. Craft is especially nice. I has an incredibly powerful developer experience and an incredibly refined editor experience. Those 2 don't often go together. Grav and Kirby are nice in that they give you all the nice features of a CMS, but don't require a database, so they're trivially easy to stand up almost anywhere.
I want to learn Frontend Development, but all the technologies and how they interact with each other are overwhelming and confusing. Where do I start?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/webdev | 19 Oct 2022
So, I looked for some alternatives and stumbled upon stuff like Statamic, Grav, or Craft. The features sound super cool and it looks just awesome! Just what I need. But then there's the thing called... installation. Via package managers. npm. Composer. Terminal commands. YIKES. In my imagination, I just install it on my webspace (web hosting provider, shared hosting), similar to e.g. WordPress, and configure it right there.
How do I set up a website, advice needed!

Well that’s a loads of arse. In that case build something with Grav or similar static generator like Jekyll.

Yak Shaving: A Short Lesson on Staying Focused

> I had that idea at least 1-2 years ago, and I've only recently written my first post within the past 2 months. I think I enjoy tinkering with build systems much more than writing.
This is very much an easy trap to fall into! What helped me was not sweating over the small stuff and setting up an instance of Grav, though I think that most of the turnkey blogging solutions out there would work (e.g. Ghost/Bolt as well, maybe not self-hosted Wordpress as a first option due to large surface area): https://getgrav.org/
What I really like about that solution in particular is that it is flat-file based and also has an admin web dashboard that's a separate plugin that can be enabled/disabled (some might prefer writing text files directly, with front matter and all) and has separate URL path that can be put behind basicauth (in addition to built in auth), client certificate auth or anything else.
It's not perfect, of course, and has given me the occasional headaches, but it's also good enough for my blog: https://blog.kronis.dev/
That said, I still struggle with my homepage - instead of going back through 5+ years of projects and describing all of the noteworthy ones, putting up a few galleries of screenshots, listing technologies, ordering them by relevance and also making sure that it doesn't contain too much data... it's just sitting there, on my TODO list. It's been that way for a while now.
I want it done. But I don't want to do it.

Show HN: Markdown as Web Page/Site
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Aug 2022
The Grav CMS also internally uses Markdown for the page contents and generates static files: https://getgrav.org/
They do use YAML FrontMatter for attaching metadata so the CMS knows how to process certain pages (e.g. page title, page type etc.), but it isn't too complicated in practice: https://learn.getgrav.org/17/content/content-pages#page-file
They also have an admin plugin, which you can use if you prefer a more traditional workflow, even if it just generates the same file format under the hood: https://learn.getgrav.org/16/admin-panel/introduction
I'm actually using an ancient version of Grav for my own blog, although I had to put the admin path behind additional auth (in addition to the one it already provides), for safety: https://blog.kronis.dev/
I really like hybrid systems like that: a CMS for blogging or just writing in general that's based on Markdown, generates static files for decent performance, but is also extensible with additional functionality, and also has a decent web UI if you want one.
(there are probably other CMSes like that out there, or more generic solutions, too)
