What is WebYep?

WebYep is Web Content Management System. WebYep is now Open Source. There are many WebCMS available, even Open Source, but WebYep is different:

  • WebYep is designed to be simple. It's easier to get started and understand all its features.
  • WebYep does not require a database server.
  • WebYep is available in German and English.
  • No PHP or HTML knowledge required.
  • Comes with Dreamweaver and RapidWeaver plugins.

What is in this Repository?

This git repository contains the source code of WebYep. If you just want to install and use WebYep, it's easier to download a package from

Use this repository if you want to apply patches or change anything in WebYep. If you fix any bugs or add features, please send a patch or a pull request to Objective Development.

Building a WebYep Package from the Source Code

In order to build WebYep from the source code, you need the following prerequisites:

  • Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. Mac OS X comes with a command line version of PHP.
  • If you want to build the Dreamweaver Plugin, you need to copy the application Adobe Extension Manager into the external-dependencies directory. This version of WebYep has been tested with Adobe Extension Manager CS5 version 5.0.298, but newer versions should work as well.
  • If you want to build the RapidWeaver plugin, you need Xcode 4 (tested with version 4.6, but older and newer versions should work as well) and the RapidWeaver Plugin Utilities framework. Copy the folder RWPluginUtilities.framework into the external-depenencies directory. As of RapidWeaver 5 this framework can be found in

If a prerequisite for a plugin is missing, the build script simply omits the respective package with the plugin.

Once you have all prerequisites installed, run the build script. Open a Terminal window, change directory into the root of this repository and type:

release-building/make_release.php -r <version>

Replace <version> with the version specification of the packages you want to build, e.g. 1.7.2-patched.

Run the script without parameters to see other build options. Once the script has finished, it opens a Finder window with English and German WebYep packages, ready for distribution.

Tested Versions of Prerequisites

WebYep has a couple of prerequisites for building from the source code (see above), and can be integrated with various external packages such as rich text editors etc. Here's a list what has been tested. Newer and older versions may work as well.
