The easiest way to build simple websites.

Saaze is an all-inclusive, flat-file CMS for simple websites and blogs.

Get Started

Why Saaze?

WordPress is a great CMS but it can become bloated and a maintenance nightmare for a simple sites. Static site builders are fast but normally have a steep learning curve and require lots of tooling to make them work. Building a personal site should be stupidly simple. That's why Saaze is different.

Easy to run

PHP is used by 80% of all websites on the internet. So all you need to run Sazze is PHP (and Composer).

Easy to host

Serve your site with any PHP webserver. Or build a "static" version of your site at deploy time.

Easy to edit

Edit your content using simple Markdown files + a sprinkle of Yaml metadata. Works great with Git.

Easy to theme

You don't need to learn another template language. Blade is just like PHP... but nicer.

Fast and secure

No database means less maintenance headaches, better security and more speed to boot.

Simple to understand

Sazze deliberately has a stupidly simple architecture. Everything is a collection of entries.


Saaze comes with out-of-the-box CLI tools for serving and building your site. Nothing else required.

Free & Open

Saaze is open source and open (MIT) licensed. Use it, abuse it, love it, eat it. We don't care.

One more thing

Just kidding. I needed to put something here to complete the grid. Sorry about that.
