PSM (Personal Site Manager) is an easy to use CMS (content management system) for simple content sites.
Target of this project is to develop an easy way for creating a simple site with a smart editor for edit content.
In every editable box (when administrator is logged) appear a toobar with the command that you can do for that box (ie: edit content).
It is design for PHP. No database required, and it save all information and content into flat file.
For editing the contents it use HtmlArea Javascript HTML WYSIWYG Editor (
It is possible to create template for the creation of new page and it support versioning of the content edited.

Difference between this cms and others is that there isn't an administration for the content, simply you can navigate your site and when you find a page that you want to change you can log-in as administrator and edit it.
