ShinyCMS is a content management system intended for use by Web designers and Web developers who want to keep a clear distinction between the markup they create and the content their clients can edit. Designers add templates to the CMS, which define page layouts containing editable elements. Users can then build pages by selecting an appropriate template and editing the elements it contains. This approach means that editing content is a simple and safe process, and the site look and feel is kept consistent and professional.
Chyrp is a blogging engine designed to be very lightweight while retaining functionality. It has powerful theme and extension engines, so you can personalize it however you want. The code is well-documented, and it has a very strong structure that's loosely based on the MVC design pattern. Chyrp allows importation from several different blogging engines and uses a system called "feathers", which are basically templates for custom posts.
Simblog aims to be one of the most easy-to-use and lightweight blogging platforms. It emphasizes user experience, workflow, and ease of use without neglecting usability and extensibility. It will take full advantage of what HTML5 and CSS3 have to offer without delving too deeply into experimental features. It is built on its own lightweight framework, which allows a high degree of extensibility and modularity for your blog. It uses Smarty as a templating engine (which also provides a caching mechanism), jQuery and Kendo UI for frontend design, and MySQL as a database.
Blite is a lightweight blog application with a focus on simplicity and ease of use. It provides the essential features of a blog, including categories, archives, and comments. It can easily be themed by modifying a stylesheet and a few simple templates. Blite pages are fast-loading and validate as HTML 4.01. Comment spam is filtered to a spambox (by the use of blogspam.net), where it can be reviewed and deleted (or published). Blite requires PHP 5.3 (or later) with the sqlite extension, and the xmlrpc extension for comment spam filtering.

PySite is not a CMS in the traditional sense. Rather, you manage the contents of a Web site via a file manager interface, which gives you access to all settings (pages, styles, plugins, etc.). Compose your pages with Jinja templates, and edit your code comfortably with syntax highlighting in the ACE editor. You may write your stylesheets in Sass and let the integrated compiler write CSS files. PySite also contains a facility to manage virtual mailboxes, in case you maintain your own SMTP and IMAP server, e.g. with Postfix and Dovecot.
