Groupy is an open source content management system that allows groups within an organization to share multi-lingual content.
Version: 0.67Groupy project is an open source content management system that allows groups within an organization to share multi-lingual content. Groupy provides a unique tool for organizing diverse content types (Articles, News, Files, Images, Events, etc...) in a rich editing environment similar to a wiki. I want Groupy to be great blog, a great file and image gallery, a great on-line calendar, and mailing list manager all with an easy to use consistant interface.
Operating System: Linux
Groupy comes from several years of working with, writing plug-ins and skins for several other content management systems. In particular wordpress, joomla, and mediawiki. I found it odd that in order to set up what I considered a fully functional church website I needed multiple installations of these systems, and that integrating them was extremely painful. I also noticed that there was significant functional overlap present and that in general there could be opportunity for much code sharing. Thus I have undertaken the daunting task to bring them together.
Here are some key features of "Groupy":
· Highly extensible plug-in architecture.
· Flexible skin system.
· All strings fully internationalized.
· Infrastructure for multi-language sites.
· Organized code base with minimal global functions.
· All content types extend a common base class.
· Revision history kept for all content.
· Text body for all content allows for links to other content.
· Ability to email content to subscribed users.
· Ability to comment on content
