A Ruby CMS for *developers* and *designers*.
With simple code that's easy to follow, Nesta is easily
extended using the Sinatra web framework.

%h1 Why use Nesta?
:markdown
Do you prefer writing and testing HTML and CSS in a text editor,
rather than a browser window? Are you happy writing copy in
*Markdown* or *Textile*? If so, Nesta might be for you.
There's no database to configure – everything is stored in
text files. You can review your changes on a local copy of your web
site, and copy the files to your server when you're ready to publish
(most people use Git).

[Nesta] was a great foundation to start from, and I love working
with Sinatra.

navel-labs.com is running 100% Nesta. I was thinking of just using
Nesta for the cms and delegating the blog to Tumblr or Posterous,
but after I wrapped my head around what Nesta can do, I was a
total convert.

I never realized how completely unacceptable Wordpress
templating is until I started to implement the @toutapp blog
using @nestacms.
