    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.

    If you must stay with front-end tech you can use fetch with a path rather than a url to get public files from a given dir. Maybe look into static site generators (eleventy for example) or flat-file CMSs (kirby for example).

    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.

    What OP is building is not a typical "flat file CMS".

    Flat File CMS are typical CMS systems (often times written in PHP) that run on the server, but use files (often Markdown/Frontmatter) as their data layer (instead of a DB like Wordpress, Drupal, etc.) – if you're looking for a really nice Flat File CMS take a look at Kirby (https://getkirby.com).

    What OP is building (I think) and what others like Netlify CMS and Tina CMS do, are Frontend Applications (typically SPA) that output a set of content files, which can then be fed into a static site generator (like Next.js, Astro, Hugo, Jekyll), which will built a website from it. So it's a "smaller" concept than flat file CMS. Typically these "static CMS" only care about content and have nothing to do with templating, etc.

    Kirby. https://getkirby.com

    It’s PHP based, but content is all stored as markdown with optional front-matter.

    I'm trying to get away from a DB-based CMS for some company web sites. Static generators won't do for a number of reasons, so a flat-file CMS seems like a good fit.

    Currently I'm looking at GravCMS [1] as an alternative. It's free initially, but it can become somewhat expensive with many official plugins. But it's file format is Markdown, and one can combine multiple files into a so-called modular page. It has a backend for editing, forms and e-mailing of form submissions. Seems perfect for small and mid-sized company web site.

    Another option I considered was Kirby [2]. Its backend UI is configurable. That's nice in theory but the documentation is somewhat lacking, in my opinion. I've used the starterpack and it took me hours to find the one command to be able to add new pages. Its content format is also custom, not Markdown. Finally, it's €100 per site.

    Also, a few days ago, I stumbled upon Typemill [3] which I will check next week.
