BoltWire is an easy-to-use web development system with surprizing flexibility and power. It's ground-breaking architecture makes it easy to create fully interactive sites without having to learn a line of programming. Best of all, it's free!

The Secret

The secret behind BoltWire's tiny size, yet robust capabilities, is its amazing ZAP engine, that makes complex form processing a snap. BoltWire lets you create forms in seconds that do about anything you want. In fact, EVERY site action is controlled by forms you can edit, giving you TOTAL control over how your site works. In BoltWire, you don't just build content, you build the engine itself--right through your browser!

It's an innovative idea, leading to radical results: incredible power in the tinyiest of footprints. To the best of my knowledge, it is the first web development system of its kind.

Our Philosophy

From its beginning, BoltWire's development has been guided by a philosophy that can be summed up in four key principles: keep it simple, small, strong and secure.

Simple     Make installation, extensions and upgrades a snap. Configuration should be straightforward and easy.
Small Right around 100k zipped up. Only include the minimum code needed for maximum extensibility and speed.
Strong Like a great big toolbox. Give admins power to customize everything, right though their browser.
Secure Tough session-based forms verification, input filtering, and common sense precautions. Flexible permissions.

If our BoltWire Philosophy makes sense, and you like the idea of being able to not only control content, but ALL site interactions, give us a try. We'll help you build your site, bolt by bolt, and wire by wire...
