Ella CMS

Ella is opensource CMS based on Django framework, designed for flexibility.

It is composed from several modules:

  • Ella core is the main module which links the rest together. It defines architecture on which other modules are built but doesn't do anything really usefull all alone.
  • Ella core plugins are plugins that are shipped in one package together with Ella. There are articles and positions which we consider to be a basic toolbox for each Ella site.
  • Other Ella plugins are standalone applications (and therfore not shipped with the core) that provide some specific functionality using Ella's architecture. We can mention polls, galleries, quizes and many more.

Feature highlights:

  • Simple organization of content based on categories
  • Efficent implementation of the published content
  • In-build photo formating backend
  • Django-admin ready
  • Plugin system
  • Flexibile
  • Scalable
  • Extensible
  • Caching-friendly
  • Well tested
  • Proven in production environment

News

Currently, we released the 3.x version which features a major cleanup of the code a removal of unneeded dependencies.

More news are on the way as we are going to make a nicely-tailored admin specifically made for the need of news writers and editors.
