Statamic 2 Documentation
Statamic cuts out the database to create a faster, more productive way to build, manage, and version control beautifully creative, bespoke websites.
By eliminating the rigid, relational database, we unlock the ability to create and support any data structures you can imagine, and provide you with a Control Panel that is flexible in ways you may assume are impossible. Statamic can scale to heights not possible with a MySQL database.
Out of the box, Statamic runs on a flat file engine based on Markdown and YAML files and a smart caching system. As your site grows, you can take advantage of other storage mechanisms to scale up to sites as large as spiegel.de.
