You need a server with PHP 5.3+, and very basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, javascript. This templating framework has no real GUI to edit menus / pages, so you have to know how to use html syntax in pages (for including images, titles, bold text) and very basic Javascript (just filling in some arguments!) for setting up the tiles. If you’re unsure your capabilities are enough, try the free lite version on the download page.
