Welcome to Piranha CMS
Piranha CMS is a lightweight framework for building content driven applications using ASP.NET MVC & Web Pages. The main focus of the framework lies in structuring and managing content, not in providing a pre packaged web interface.
Piranha CMS can be used to build a new application from scratch, or to add CMS functionality to an already existing application.
Piranha CMS is released under the MIT license. It is a permissive free software license, meaning that it permits reuse within proprietary software provided all copies of the licensed software include a copy of the MIT License terms and the copyright notice
The master branch of this reposiory is the development branch. If you want to use the source code that resembles the current NuGet-version, DO NOT use the master branch. Instead, use the branch with the same name as the current version on NuGet.
There are NuGet packages available for both the template projects, as well as for the core libraries. To read more about how to get started and the different packages available you can find more information in the Wiki section at:
