It's been a while since I looked, but I believe BakedJake's requires a unique directory for every page.  Also, I looked but couldn't really determine how images were managed. It's been my experience that these two items become fatal flaws if you try to scale beyond a few dozen pages or so.

One thing that really appeals to me about Lektor is this

All source data is well structured and can be tracked in a version control system or cloud storage like Dropbox.

This is often a pain point with a DB-driven CMS

>requires a unique directory for every page.

I looked at this last week, briefly, and it didn't look like a good client solution due to the short-code style coding. However, did look like a good option for internal projects. I'll let you know when I eventually get back to this and dig in deeper.

I didn't like it, either. 

Typesetter still catches my eye.  A quick search turns up a 3yr old post where someone was trying to make an add-on for better pix management --no telling if they ever got it to fly.

Github or Dropbox for persistent storage, it looks like

And yes, it seems the whole thing runs on JS... honestly, I find their docs kind of confusing. I think I would need to use it to understand it. It's a different paradigm and it seems like it's easier to set up and use than to "get" through reading

Drastic upstream 18 months ago:

I'm working on a short-list spec:

- pinging (outgoing only for notify of new posts) & way to edit sites pinged
- custom url structure for cats/posts
- image upload & rich text editor for client posting
- rss feed of posts
- no comments for now, ability to integrate fb/discus comments if client wants.
- runs on php
- uses flatfiles and no db connection
- easily styled using an existing html template to match the site, and run in a directory on the site

Ever come up with a dog-simple cms for clients, Dras?

Unfortunately no, and it needs to be revisited. It's been back-burnered so far I'm going to have to dig it out of the drywall. Recent G changes mean I really need to get back on this (or put someone on it, more likely) soonish.

So, it's been a while since I looked at these and was looking at grav again.

The sticking point has been the editor and this makes it more workable:

Using the panel buttons on highlighted text will add markdown to the text. This still isn't good for a client front end. I'll need to dig around some more.

Database required though. I thought that was a showstopper

It uses sqlite, which is close enough.

Played around with it this evening. Meh indeed. About the same for typesetter, played around with it some more too.

Hard to find just what I want.
