Grav is a swift, user-friendly, flexible web platform that works on a file-based system. Unlike other platforms, it doesn't require any installation process. Just decompress the ZIP file and you're good to go! It adheres to the principles used by other flat-file content management systems (CMS), but it offers a unique design philosophy. Plus, Grav is integrated with an efficient package management system that simplifies plugin and theme installation and upgrades as well as Grav updates.
