Coil CMS is a user-friendly CMS frontend for Nikola — a static site and blog generator, written in Python.

Coil CMS can lower the barrier to entry for people wanting to write posts: with Coil, users do not need to know any markup languages (it comes with a WYSIWYG editor), Unix and don’t even need to know what a static site generator is. They can just write and hit Rebuild, and everything will be taken care of for them by Coil CMS.

Coil CMS is using the Flask framework and heavily depends on parts of the Nikola codebase. It offers a friendly user interface and the same care and attention to detail Nikola users are accustomed to.
