The Secret

The secret to BoltWire's small size, but robust capabilities, is its form processor, which allows you to create complex forms that can do virtually anything you want.

Better still, you can create unlimited new actions in a snap!

To put it differently, BoltWire doesn't just let you build content, it let's you build the engine itself--anyway you want! This gives a flexibility and power not possible in other systems, while maintaining the tiniest of footprints. It's the perfect platform for creating robust web applications, fast.
