A friendly and powerful open source CMS with an API that is a joy to use at any scale.
ProcessWire is a free content management system (CMS) and framework (CMF) built to save you time and work the way you do. With all custom fields, a secure foundation, proven scalability and performance, ProcessWire connects all of your content seamlessly, making your job fast, easy and fun.
ProcessWire exists to bridge the gap between the current content management landscape and the needs of many designers, developers and clients in a CMS.
In this brief article, we’ll take a closer look at why ProcessWire just might be the ideal solution for your website or application needs. In order to understand why, we first have to look at the current CMS landscape, and then we’ll look at where and why ProcessWire fits.
The current CMS landscape and what’s wrong with it
There are many good CMS products out there, but having used them all, it became clear that was a real lack of products that accomplished all of these things:
- Balance their complexity
- Make sense from the get-go
- Adapt well to existing designer/developer processes
- Provide a powerful and easy-to-use API
- Deliver an equally satisfying experience to the designer, developer and end-user
Some very respectable CMSs are encumbered by structure, terminology and processes that relate back to roots in blogging. This is something that I view as a bottleneck and not the fit many designers/developers are looking for (including myself).
