Bricolage is an open-source and enterprise-class content management system that makes creating, managing and publishing content very easy.

Both content and design is shaped with standards-compliant HTML + CSS and no JavaScript programming is required.

Treesaver JS

It simply searches for the <article> tags and displays the content inside them, makes browsing them possible with prev-next buttons and auto-generates a "contents" menu.

The JavaScript is under 25K gzipped (pretty important for mobile) and works with most modern browsers (degrades gracefully for others).

Treesaver is not totally mature yet and works best with simply-formatted text and images.

ProcessWire is an open source CMS application that is built with PHP and simplicity in mind.

Anything can be built with ProcessWire as all page fields in it are custom fields. It's easy to edit, add, sort or remove fields from pages (via templates) as you see fit.

And, for maximum flexibility, fields can be as simple as containing raw text or numbers, or more complex like rich text editors, page-to-page relations and fields that hold files or images.

The application is friendly for end-users too as no details other than the "things-to-done" are displayed.

It has a modular plugin architecture for extending functionality and a must-check for any designer/developer (specially jQuery users).
