People Nature Stones

The motivation is to develop an easy-to-use CMS and a code base that can be easily cloned to reduce coding time and make such systems more affordable for non-commercial users.

WordPress has been the standard framework for such use cases for ages. Providing an alternative without security flaws, better page speed and UX along with lower cloud hosting costs is the long term goal.

The challenge is to keep it as small as possible. That's important because all the backend code is consumed on every request, so the amount of memory required should be kept to a minimum and execution should remain fast. Therefore, the use of third-party libraries is kept to a minimum.
