Current Version

The current version is 1.2.3 and it was released on the 31st of March 2020. I seem to have forgotten to update this for the past 3 releases.


A secure CMS / site generator, which only knows how to read files you create. It has no code that can write to the system. It just checks for files. To see it in action check out the picosite website which uses most features, and you can see the source of this site in the 'demosite' branch.

In only roughly 750 lines of code!

There are two branches 'master' is stable and so you can clone right away. There is another branch where I iteratively change stuff and see what happens called 'fiddling' because I just fiddle around with stuff.

There are sometimes brances for big feature introductions.



Copy page.php to the remote server and create and other page files. You can use picocodes to create your site. Use REFERENCE.txt (incomplete) to find a reference of picocodes.


Copy everything to your remote server for hosting the website. Then move your getprices.php and secure the site, where you will want to make it so the webserver can't serve up .page files on the site. You might also want to delete README.txt and REFERENCE.txt to stop versioning. Read README.txt on your computer or preserve it somehow to learn how to configure picosite.



You may find with the latest 1.2.0 release that we no longer use config.php - despite a principle of backward compatibility I did not understand PHP GLOBAL() properly. Now settings are inherited from a settings.php which is optional. You can find the settings at the top of page.php and explained in the README.txt file.
