About GCMS

I appreciate the ready-made options for putting together a content website, such as Wordpress, Drupal etc. But as an old-school engineer with a M.Sc. in computer science and a long-standing career as a successful Internet entrepreneur, I just feel more compelled to build my own tools for the job whenever time allows.

So it was clear that only a content management system written by myself would be usable enough to host my own website. Enter GCMS, or "Guido's Content Management System" as I called it due to an acute lack of inspiration after finishing the initial version.

I've still left some bugs and missing features in there for you to stumble upon. If you find one, please leave a comment in the section below. Thank you!

I have released GCMS into the public domain under the GPLv3 open source license. Feel free to check it out on GitHub at
