You would need to create a CMS of sorts. Have a site that dynamically loads data from a database through via php .

its better to allow the client to edit part of the site through CMS. It will help the client to load data from database to edit the site.

This is a list of CMS's by language

Sorry I didn't read the first post correctly.

You could do this with Javascript/jQuery and a server side language like PHP.


You could give the logged in user rights to edit and use the php to generate a view for the user that can be manipulated using Javascript/jQuery.

Jeditable is a jQuery plugin that may be of assistance to you.

I think the point, reveal, was creating a system where the owner could edit the site without having to manually manage the HTML files. A CMS is definitely the way to go.
