Simple. Fast. Flat.

Edit Text Files

Baun makes creating and maintaining a website as simple as editing text files with your favorite text editor.

Light & Fast

Baun was designed with performance in mind. The lightweight codebase and no database makes Baun blazing fast.

No Database

Baun is designed as a "flat file" CMS, meaning there is no database and you can completely forget about MySQL.

Markdown Formatting

Use your favourite text editor to edit your pages and create your website using simple Markdown formatting.

Twig Templates

Baun uses the Twig templating engine, for powerful and flexible themes. This site is an example of a Baun theme.

Open & Extendable

Baun is open source and has a very modular architecture, great for developers who like to hack things up.
