Alkaline

"Finally, a CMS for creative pros. Drag-and-drop uploading, automatic metadata retrieval, and deceptively simple theming are just the beginning. Treat your Web site to Alkaline."

Alkaline was developed by Budin Ltd. as a commerical PHP content management system from February 2011 to August 2012. It has since been discontinued, and is now available as open source software. A license is no longer required to use the application.

Features & Documentation

You can learn more about Alkaline at alkalineapp.com.
