Skimpy is a file based CMS that supports markdown. Skimpy IS NOT a static site generator.

Skimpy was born out of frustration with static site generators. Devs love sites that are entirely file based because we love version control and working in flat files. I don't think anyone loves running generators and watching files for changes. Skimpy gives you all the benefits of a file based site with markdown posts and YAML config without the generating.

Easy Content Creation

You build content in Skimpy by creating markdown files and typing in them.

Categories & Tags

You can categorize and tag your content with YAML Front Matter

Powerful Templating with Twig

Skimpy uses Twig for templating. You can assign custom templates to individual content files or entire directories.
