Simmilar to Typemill MD documents navigator) is based on my B12phpfw code skeleton. Compared with Free CMSs other flat files DB in my opinion is :
Technology: PHP 5.6+, Slim, Simfony Templating: Twig Formatting: Markdown Open source: yes Website: http://typemill.net/ no admin panel, free, open-source, no admin login composer update Run Locally
If you are a developer and if you want to run TYPEMILL locally, then download TYPEMILL (zip or git) and visit your local folder like localhost/typemill. No additional work is required. Recommended: Copy file settings.yaml.example in the root folder of TYPEMILL and rename it to settings.yaml. Fill out the settings directly in the file. It is human readable, so no problem for you! Recommended: If you run you website on your local machine, you can also go to your-local-adress/setup and fill out the setup form. Be careful: You can also upload TYPEMILL to a live server and fill out the form live. Just visit your-website.com/setup. But be aware, that everybody can visit this adress and setup your website easily. It is not a big deal, because you can always upload your own settings.yaml file with your ftp program.
To run a live website, upload TYPEMILL to your webserver (e.g. with ftp). You have to make some folders and files writable: \cache \content To make the folders and files writable, use your ftp programm, click on the folder, choose permissions and change the permission to 744. Use the recursive permission for all containing files and folders. If 744 does not work, try 774.
To fill the website with your own content, upload your folders and markdown files to the content folder of TYPEMILL (with ftp again). Visit your website and press F5 to actualize the cache.

61 kB PHP 5.5+, jQuery 1.12.4, Bootstrap 3.3.7 & Fontawesome, one file .json DB. One file .json DB could be minus, jQuery, Bootstrap & Fontawesome are slow (overkill) in my opinion. Extremely simple and will not be feature soup (over-bloated with features). I like it's help, way of thinking.
