Cockpit was born out of the need of building a simple dynamic site. Sure, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and all the other full-stack content management systems are possible solutions for that task … but let’s be honest, if you just want to manage a simple site (e.g. one pager) they are just too bloated and too time consuming to setup and maintain.
Cockpits goal is to be simple, but yet powerful and designed in that way that you can spend less time trying to squeeze your site into a theme or template. No need to setup a database server. You need a backup? Just zip your project folder or better, combine it with versioning systems like Git. No database server is required. No generation or build scripts, no heavyweight PHP libraries or dependencies. Cockpit was succesfully tested on Apache. Nginx, or whatever web server you choose should also work out of the box.Cockpit
