w20e.pycms is Yet Another CMS, but without the acronym. Why, for the flying spaghetti monsters sake another CMS? Well, you know how it goes. You use Plone for some years, find out that when your favourite tool is a hammer, all problems have a rather strong tendency towards looking like a nail… Then Pyramid comes along, giving you the best of Plone (ZODB, Zope Component Architecture, ZCML, Chameleon, etc.) for creating lightweight apps. Then you need a Page with wysiwyg… then you need search… sharing. Then you wake up with a basic CMS in your hands. May as well share it so you can decide for yourself whether it is worth your while.
Anyway, read more in the documentation within the package if you like.
w20e.pycms is not for the faint of heart, nor for people that cannot read Python code, hate programming, think that the use of XML for configuration is sooo 1990, are convinced that Windows 95 was the best OS ever or would preferrably use a rocket launcher to deal with vermin in the kitchen. It _is_ on the other hand, for those that rank fuckit.js among the best JS libraries ever, enjoy Terry Pratchett, love buildout en ZCML and think that beer is so much more that just a breakfast drink.
Our little CMS gives you a framework to build your sites upon, if you’re not targeting the enterprise market. If you do, be gone (to the plone.org site)!
PyCMS gives you:
- ZODB for storing data
- user & group management
- search, using repoze.catalog (optional)
- creating and maintaining pages
- an easily extendable framework for new content types
- a lot of ZCML configuration
- CMS design based on (Twitter) Bootstrap
