About the Nuxeo Platform
The Nuxeo Platform is an open source customizable and extensible content management platform for building business applications. It provides the foundation for developing document management, digital asset management and case management application. You can easily add features using ready-to-use addons or by extending the platform using its extension point system.
The Nuxeo Platform is developed and supported by Nuxeo, with contributions from the community.
The project is splitted in several sub-modules (listed in dependency order):
- nuxeo-common: Common utilities
- nuxeo-runtime: Container and runtime basic services
- nuxeo-core: Document/content management core services
- nuxeo-services: Basic services such as file manager, directories, document types
- nuxeo-theme: Services related to the theme and theme rendering

- nuxeo-dm: The default Nuxeo Platform application, mostly configuration and UI elements
- nuxeo-distribution: This module builds, packages and tests the Nuxeo products.
Running the Nuxeo Platform requires Java 8. Depending on the features you want to use, you may need some third-party software, such as Libre Office and pdftohtml for document preview or ImageMagick for pictures. The list of third-party software is available in our Admin documentation: Installing and Setting Up Related Software.
Building the Nuxeo Platform requires the following tools:
- JDK 8 (Oracle's JDK or OpenJDK recommended)
- Apache Maven 3.1.1+ (3.2+ recommended)
- Apache Ant 1.7.1+
- Git (obviously)
- NodeJS 0.10.32, npm, yo, grunt-cli, gulp, bower
Each module includes unit and integration tests. Functional tests are available in nuxeo-distribution and for each addon Marketplace module.
