October is a Content Management System (CMS) and web platform whose sole purpose is to make your development workflow simple again. It was born out of frustration with existing systems. We feel building websites has become a convoluted and confusing process that leaves developers unsatisfied. We want to turn you around to the simpler side and get back to basics.
October's mission is to show the world that web development is not rocket science.
Please note: October is open source but it is not free software. A license with a small fee is required for each website you build with October CMS.
Instructions on how to install October can be found at the installation guide.
