Up and Running With Grav CMS

Welcome to the Course


Grav is a flat-file CMS, meaning you get a fast, sophisticated and flexible CMS without ever having to worry about databases. There are no complicated installation processes, and all content is powered by Markdown.

By the end of this course you’ll understand the fundamentals of how Grav operates, the three different types of content it uses, how its file structure and naming protocols work, and the relationship between Markdown files and theme templates.

You’ll also be creating a theme from the ground up that features a modular homepage, blog and regular pages. You won’t be using Grav’s theme starter files or any pre-built skeletons; rather you’ll construct each file yourself so you get to see how every part of the theme works. A completed CSS stylesheet will be provided, however, to ensure you can focus on Grav-related code.
