Imprint CMS (Content Management System)

Seniors Honors Project by Raymond Gines (Due in April 2019)

The Imprint CMS (Content Management System) aims to emulate the key features of popular existing CMS applications such as Wordpress, Drupal, Magento, etc. This will be a lightweight alternative that can be used to kick start a digital presence by producing landing pages, product pages, and blog posts with ease. Individuals will be able to register and create their own account that will be secured in a database that they can use to login and manage their pages and posts. In addition, they will have the option of changing multiple settings such as the theme and color scheme of their website.

The overall goal is to be able to setup a website with the main features that can dynamically create pages on the fly and edit them as I wish. I want to be able to experience all levels of development from the front-end,back-end, and server-side to create a “significant” web application.

  • Python
  • Flask - Web framework for Python
  • HTML - Used to generate Flask templates that holds the content for pages and posts
