YaWK is a free, open-source-bundle solution CMS to build, design and operate any modern webpage or web-app. Designed to be slick, fast and reliable. Steady in development. It brings together, what belongs together. YaWK uses HTML, CSS, MySQL, PHP and JavaScript to bundle Bootstrap, jQuery, AdminLTE, FontAwesome and much more of your favourite daily use web open source tools and combines them into a new base for your daily work.

Please remember: before you download this pre-release version: YaWK is currently in active development and NOT YET RELEASED. If you like, you can get a sneak peak - feel free to download the latest current development version from GitHub:

But please consider - YaWK is is in constant development and underlies nearly daily changes. Due this fact it can not be guaranteed that everything work in this test version as expected. You may possibly encounter some major or minor warnings or bugs.

Before YaWK will be officially released, you will always get the current development version. After the first version is officially released, there will be a seperate development branch. You should wait for the official first release before you use YaWK in productive environment. I'm happy about comments, stars, followers and / or code contributions. Thank You!

Why all this? - there are so many CMS around...

YaWK is an open source project, built for everyone. Actually there is no big business company or foundation behind it - (yet!) At the moment it is still (mainly) a one man show, - exclusively developed for my own, personal purpose. I started this project because I was not satisfied with all other solutions. So I took the challenge and started developing an overall tool that fits my personal needs. Originally it was not meant to public. But the bigger the project growed, the more people told me to make it accessable to the public crowd. After spending a lot of my lifetime on this project, I decided to follow my friends - I've uploaded it to GitHub and kept the repository private until the status of the project has got to a level where others can make use out of it. Though all efforts of "getting it to the point", this project is not finished yet - and never will be. It will stay in development, as long as I or somebody else take care about it.
