Bear Content Mangement System

Bear is a personal content management and publishing system. Unlike most CMSs, bear doesn’t require a server application. The system puts all logic at the client (currently a Perl script), and uses a combination of Markdown and custom tags.


Documentation is in the docs folder. The documentation is generated using bear, so the source for the docs is in docs/staging.


Bear currently requires Perl. This probably means that it requires UNIX (or Linux, etc.), since we haven’t tested it on Windows yet. If you’d like to test it on Windows, please let us know what happens.

If you have Text::Markdown (available from CPAN) then bear can use it to process Markdown-formatted text.

Next you’ll need to grab bear itself, and install the script wherever you see fit. For the time being, the code is available from
