The Motivation to build GlintCMS was the frustration we had while developing Real Time Systems as well as more "Static" Platforms, that need to be rendered on the server side for Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
We switched between different technologies and monolyts, until we decided to build small modules, that we can reuse for web applications as well as for web sites.
It turned into a modular and flexible solution, that leaves you enough room for custom solutions for small to medium Web Sites.
It basically has no backend, but intuitive inline editing. It can run stuff on the server as well as in the browser.
GlintCMS follows the GlintAPP principle: github.com/glintapp/glintapp
