Reading the new trends in CMS is called the Grav CMS which was best award in new CMS . The opensource website has nice touch in frontend and backend. Spend time to feel the environment and start practicing to level up your skills.
Although you can get away with Notepad, Textedit, Vi, or whatever default text editor comes with your platform, we recommend using a good text editor with syntax highlighting to make things easier. Here are some recommended options:
- Atom – MacOS/Windows/Linux – A new editor developed by Github. It’s free and open source. It is similar to Sublime, but does not have the sheer depth of plugins available yet.
- SublimeText – MacOS/Windows/Linux – A commercial developer’s editor, but well worth the price. Very powerful especially combined with plugins such as Markdown Extended, Pretty YAML, and PHP-Twig.
- Notepad++ – Windows – A free and very popular developer’s editor for Windows.
- Bluefish – MacOS/Windows/Linux – A free, open source text editor geared towards programmers and web developers.
Another option if you primarily work with just creating content, is to use a dedicated Markdown Editor. These often are very content-centric and usually provide a live-preview of your content rendered as HTML. There are literally hundreds of these, but some good options include:
- MacDown – MacOS – Free, a simple, lightweight open source Markdown editor.
- LightPaper – MacOS – $9.99, clean, powerful. Our markdown editor of choice on the Mac. Get 25% OFF with Discount Code: GET_GRAV_25
- MarkDrop – MacOS – $5, but super clean and Droplr support built-in.
- MarkdownPad – Windows – Free and Pro versions. Even has YAML front-matter support. An excellent solution for Windows users.
- Mark Text – Free, open source Markdown editor for Windows / Linux / MacOS.
Although there are many ways to deploy Grav, the simplest is to copy your local site to your hosting provider. The easiest way to accomplish this is with an FTP Client. There are many available, but some recommended ones include:
- Transmit – MacOS – The de facto FTP/SFTP client on MacOS. Easy to use, fast, folder-syncing and pretty much anything else you could ask for.
- FileZilla – MacOS/Windows/Linux – Probably the best option for Windows and Linux users. Free and very powerful (but very ugly on the Mac!).
- Cyberduck – MacOS/Windows – A decent free option for both MacOS and Windows users. Not as full-featured as the others.
- ForkLift – MacOS – A solid alternative to Transmit, and slightly cheaper to boot.
Grav walked away with the 2016 People’s Choice Award for Best Open Source CMS after being nominated in three categories, including: Best Blogging Software and Best CMS for Education.
