That's Bonfire's goal: provide a solid base off of which to build your new web applications. It's not a CMS. Instead, it's a springboard to build off of with many of the tools you wish you had on projects but never took the time to build.
All wrapped up in an elegant interface that will make you proud when you hand the project over to your client.
- Very flexible template/theme system, capable of Wordpress-like parent/child themes.
- Fully modular and built around HMVC
- 5 ‘contexts’ ready for your code: Content, Appearance, Statistics, Settings and Developer Tools
- Database backup and maintenance interface
- Role-based access control
- Built-in users/auth system
- Simple email queue system
- 2-step installer
- Ready for Reactor’s multiple-environment config files. (database settings already use it.)
- Migration-ready (using either raw SQL or Database Forge commands)
- Log view/maintenance
- Auto-updater for core
- Basic CRUD generation UI
- CRON task management
and possibly even more...

If you're interested in helping out, fork the project and start coding! I'd love to have you on board. You can always shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk about how you'll best fit it and what the best place to start coding would be.
NOTE: Latest database dump can be found under bonfire/application/db/backups. Import that into a new database, and setup your database connections and you should be good to go. You can login to the admin /admin with email: email@example.com, pass: bonfire.
