Introducing Homebräu - The CMS with the German Sounding Name

World, meet Homebräu. Homebräu, meet the world.

echo('Hello world!');

Heh, I'm sure you two are going to get along great.

Homebräu CMS

My website is powered entirely by Homebräu. It allows me to create and manage entries, pages, and files in a simple way.

Which is pretty awesome.

Aside from supporting my website, this CMS has no reason for existing. It doesn't jump higher or run faster than anything else on the market. I wanted to make something cool from the ground up, so that's what I've done. I like doing front end dev work, but I grew up cutting my teeth on back end development. I definitely find more joy in writing a simple, powerful, efficient function than I do floating div tags left and right. I enjoy and embrace that challenge. And from that love spawned this abomination, which I now release unto the world, like Dr. Frankenstein did his monster.

I really should re-evaluate my world domination plans.

    Good for you for taking on the challenge and fun in doing it yourself! You showed the first few lines of code above in what looks like vim. Did you code the whole thing in a command line editor or a Win-based editor? I'm impressed regardless, but If the former, that'd be even more epic... and also explain why it took so long, lol.

      Nah, I mostly used Sublime Text, which is an awesome editor.
