The Secret

The secret to BoltWire's small size, yet unusual capabilities, is its form processor, which allows you to create complex forms that can do virtually anything you want. In fact, most actions in BoltWire are simple forms you can easily customize, giving you COMPLETE control over every aspect of how the software works.

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 complex, interactive web applications.
