High-level micro CMS inspired by BlueBream (Zope) and Django, with simplicity of use & extend in mind. Based on ZODB & bottle.

Project description

Alpha Web framework & sample mini CMS application with little dependencies: ZODB , bottle & markdown. Aims to be quite generic “all-in-one-but-minimalistic” web+database framework.

The main ideas behind

It should handle most of javascript, html & forms creation for you, for very fast prototype implementation.

Then you’r free to put your hands into html/css/js and customize to your precise requirements.


  • Add features at ONE place in ONE language (html/css/js may be required for some advanced/custom usages)

  • Be fast

  • Ajax (ajaj in fact) - with nice fallbacks for old browsers

  • No SQL

  • Website: as simple as a nested dict-like objects tree, endpoints (last element of URL) are object’s properties & methods

  • Make it as productive as possible for most generic tasks

Out of the box, it is something between a wiki and a cms, probably a good base for a lightweight web CMS / Intranet / Forum / etc…

Main Features

  • Designed to be simple, little knowledge involved

  • Automatic object edition’s form generation

  • Multi-user with access control (group based) at each level

  • Automatic “views” of your content, with regard to each object permissions

  • Webpage edition live preview, client-side form validation

  • Comes with some pre-developped objects:

    • folder index (sortable with D&D)

    • file (upload your own file, also allows D&D)

    • Web page ( markdown only )

    • Simple TODO list/TODOs (WIP)

    And of course special elements like Groups & Users ….

  • Very user friendly (once doc will be there…)


  • no documentation yet (default manager account, login/password: admin/admin )

  • no auto tests yet

  • not very powerful yet

Release changes

  • fix admin forms values if some file is added by drag & drop

  • fix admin forms values on drop over remove command

  • css improvements
