What technologies is Atom using?
Atom CMS is built with PHP (Laravel) as its backend.
The reason for using Laravel is that it's a battle-tested framework that has been developed for over a decade and it is a framework that is used widely in the real world for large-scale applications.
Laravel also comes with one of the best and most in-depth documentation you can imagine, so whether you're a PHP novice or a PHP expert, you will be able to customize Atom CMS, by simply following the Laravel documentation.
Atom CMS also comes with multi-theme support, making it a breeze to brew up a new theme, whether you choose Bootstrap CSS, Tailwind CSS, or vanilla CSS - the choice is really yours, and you aren't limited to any specific framework when building themes for Atom CMS.
Atom CMS of course comes with an "official" theme for you to enjoy and to get quickly started - The included theme is under continuous development even tho it already includes tons of features
The official theme is built with regular Blade as its templating engine and Tailwind CSS to make it beautiful.
The reason we chose to stick with regular Blade is to make it as easy as possible for newcomers to understand the CMS, due to Blade having a clean and understandable syntax - Blade is also what is used within the Laravel documentation when it comes to examples.
The base theme that comes with Atom CMS is fully responsive, meaning it looks beautiful no matter if you're on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone - We want you and your users to have the best experience possible

Atom CMS is still a fairly new project, meaning it isn't completely flawless, so if you notice any errors, please report them on this thread or within our Discord server, so they can be fixed ASAP.
Atom CMS is meant to be a community-driven project, this of course means everyone and anybody is welcome to contribute towards it, making it an even better CMS.
Keep in mind, that just because it's a community-driven project, it doesn't mean every single feature requested or contributed will be a part of the official repository.
You are of course also allowed to customize Atom CMS without contributing to the official repository. I'd however appreciate it if you kept the original credits
Where is the housekeeping?
You might have noticed that there's no housekeeping listed. There's a good reason for this and the reason is I've created a standalone housekeeping, that supports Atom CMS out of the box!
