There is no database, no content approval and no versioning. Not all people need those features and those giant-sized products that require too much time to be learned and too much system resources to run. MeshCMS is essential and requires few resources: the default 64MB heap is enough to host a handful of sites. Main features are: file-based, easy to install, cross-browser, wysiwyg editor integrated, file manager, themes, modules, tag library, page caching, hotlinking prevention.
