Any content you like
Organize content your way. Every page type or data entry can have the completely unique data structure that your project demands.
Multi-language support is baked right into the core, so you don’t depend on plugins or frameworks to translate your site.
Kirby stores media files in the same folder as the page content, not in a giant media library. Never lose track of pictures or other items again.
Markdown & KirbyText
Enjoy a fast and effective editing experience with Markdown. KirbyText extends Markdown and makes it even easier to add links, images, videos and more to your text.
Built-in REST API
Use Kirby as a headless CMS with the full power of the Panel in the background. This makes Kirby the perfect companion for your SPAs or mobile applications.
As Kirby is a file-based CMS, you can version control all content with Git or any other VCS. Deployments, backups and synchronization of multiple stages are a breeze.
Bring your own data sources
While files and folders are Kirby’s primary data source, you can generate pages from databases, REST APIs or even Excel sheets if that’s your thing.
Custom publishing workflows
Customizable page states give you maximum control over your workflow, from drafts over unreviewed to published pages. Choose what you need and start creating.
Vue UI Kit
Kirby’s Panel is powered by Vue. Use the full power of Vue or our Vue UI component kit to make the admin interface truly yours.
Don't take our word for it:
I initially tried Kirby as a prototyping framework. It worked out so great I now build most of my sites with it.
It's by far the best CMS I've used for multilingual content-sites.

So far really enjoying @getkirby. It's like the simple CMS I've dreamed about for years.
I couldn’t be happier with my choice to use Kirby. It’s a stellar application that suits me very well.
Spent some time working with @getkirby last night for a new site – such a lean, clean, flexible, file-based CMS machine! <3
After so many big web applications and sites we really love the downright simplicity of @getkirby.
Must say, I'm absolutely in love with @getkirby — simply the best php based CMS I've ever used. It's a thing of logical-beauty.
More and more a CMS needs to be headless and flexible to configure. I just <3 @getkirby’s clean & simple panel UI and native JSON support!
