Thalassa CMS

Welcome to Thalassa CMS official documentation

Thalassa CMS is, well, a CMS, which means 'Content Management System'. It is based on architecture principles that may look unusual. Briefly speaking, it is written in (a restricted subset of) C++ with no external dependencies, it doesn't rely on client-side scripting, it uses no database engine (everything is stored in plain text files), it generates all non-interactive HTML pages beforehand so your web server basically deals with static content.

Thalassa provides certain interactive features, such as a contact form and user comments, using a CGI program; in case you don't need them, you don't even need to install Thalassa on your server. For non-interactive sites, Thalassa doesn't use any cookies; the interactive part relies on exactly one cookie, which is only set when the user requests it explicitly.
