BW-CMS · by Bill Weinman

BW-CMS is a new project to create a simple, powerful, and scalable CMS (Content Management System) that can be used by anyone who wants to create a web page or six. It grew from my efforts to create a simple blogging system, and evoved into a CMS when I realized that I wanted something much more flexible than the blogging paradigm.

I started this project some time ago and I got as far as a working framework. I learned a lot and I've got an idea of where I want to go with it. For now I'm experimenting with Drupal. It seems like a workable system, but it definitely has some flaws (not the least of which is PHP!). But I'm going to play with it for a while and decide what I want to do next.

Since starting this project Python 3 has come out and I really like it. I'll probably use Python 3 when I get around to implementing the next iteration.

I wrote the following paragraph about two years ago:

In a departure from my previous web projects, I'm writing bw-cms in C. I like C. I like Perl too, but I like C better. Yes, I'm playing favorites. Okay, I also have this other goal of creating a scalable system and I just think C is better suited to that than Perl. And don't get me started on PHP. Seriously. PHP is very broken and it just gets brokener and brokener with every incompatible release. C is the way to go here.

I guess that seemed like a good idea at the time. I never did much work on it; I got busy with life and work. Now I have a real need for a CMS and, looking at the problem I guess you could say I've come to my senses.

BW-CMS is being written in perl. It will be released as part of an overal project to get all my perl modules and a lot of my work from the past ten years cleaned up and submitted to CPAN.

More news in a few weeks.
