About Craft CMS
Craft is a content-first CMS that aims to make life enjoyable for developers and content managers alike. It does so by offering developers a high level of flexibility, both in terms of content modeling and the front-end views, while also giving content managers an intuitive authoring experience.
What it’s For #
We made Craft for bespoke websites and mobile applications, where strong control over branding and content types are a priority. We optimized it for creating experiences from scratch, rather than modifying existing themes.
General Tech Specs #
Craft is a self-hosted PHP application built on Yii. You don’t need to know PHP or Yii to use it unless you intend to write your own plugins.
