Raneto Docs is a light, fast knowledge base platform for Node.js that uses static Markdown files (flat-file) to power the knowledge base. It allows users and web admins to create websites without needing a separate database. Just download the web content files and enjoy!
It offers features that may not be available to other PHP-based CMS, like WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal.
For one, it doesn’t need a database server; call it database-less. All of your content is stored in the content folder in Markdown (.md) files, and Raneto generates the entire knowledge base structure and content.
It has an SEO-friendly design, a flexible CSS framework, and more.
