A tiny, flat file CMS with a full featured wysiwyg HTML editor and responsive themes.

Version 7 now at production status, and includes some really innovative drag and drop features. Add photos or video to your pages and preview the results BEFORE you upload anything.

If you're looking for something a bit simpler than Wordpress but find most file based products too Spartan and limited, then Mara may be for you.

Designed for small commercial or personal websites, where the main requirements are for a simple, robust and secure framework which provides the functionality needed, but minus the feature bloat.

Direct-to-page online editing, see your changes as you type them. Include most types of content by drag and drop, or cut and paste.

Themes are visitor-selectable and use a straightforward, easily mastered syntax.


  • Drag and drop of most content types in v7
  • Intuitive and powerful live page editor
  • Ideal for modern responsive layouts
  • -or for more traditional styles
  • Cascading top or side menus
  • Galleries, image zoom and slideshows
  • Contact form with robot protection
  • Settings are in text files
  • Versioning and edit rollback
  • Custom themes no problem, and no rocket science
  • HTML5 and YouTube video embedding
  • You have a copy of the files? OK, you have a backup. No worries.
  • NOT a 'Web builder' or a cloud product
  • Suits the majority of Web hosting accounts.
