Checking out Bolt

Recently I was able to spend some time with Bolt, “a tool for Content Management, which strives to be as simple and straightforward as possible.”

Actually, It was very straightforward, as I only had to:

  • Clone the project from GitHub
  • Get Composer and install
  • Tweak my existing Nginx configuration
  • Export the entries from this installation of WordPress into XML
  • Enable the ImportWXR extension, and import the entries into the new Bolt database
  • And finally, tweak a few configs and Twig templates

Below you can see the entries and menu items from this blog (screenshots are from Firefox Mobile):
