You know it. You love it. And now Dominic Smith, a senior writer and content strategist at Rackspace, the Windcrest, Texas-based CMS hosting company, has confirmed what anyone reading this probably already knows.

"Chances are good that a big chunk of the content you’ll read on the web today is being delivered through an open source CMS," he wrote in a recent blog post. "FedEx and The Washington Post are using Drupal. Coca-Cola France and Sony Music are using WordPress. Harvard and IHOP use Joomla!"

Nuxeo Platform Integrates MongoDB #MongoDBWorld

You don't have to look any further than the lines of people waiting to get into MongoDB's first user conference in New York City today to understand the popularity of the NoSQL database. So it's not surprising that savvy companies are trying to get in on the action.

Take Nuxeo, for instance. The open source content management system (CMS) just integrated its platform with MongoDB to offer "high performance, availability and scalability of content centric business applications."

What's New in June for Open Source CMS

Thumbnail image for ed-schipul-with-helicopter.jpgWho has time to handle post-CMS deployment needs when there's so much to do developing the platform? That's the thinking of the creators of Tendenci, an open source content management system (CMS) project for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs).

Last week, the software development company spearheading the Tendenci platform launched a web alliance marketing program. It enables leading providers of marketing and website services to partner with Tendenci "to accelerate the success of the large installed base of websites powered by the Tendenci CMS platform," the Houston, Texas-based company claimed in a press release.

Establishing "an ecosystem of leading service providers" allows Tendenci to focus on developing its CMS platform, according to company founder and CEO Ed Schipul. He said Tendenci has more than 1 million users and powers "hundreds of websites" for NPOs, associations and other cause-related organizations worldwide.

Schipul quit his full time job as a software consultant for a large petroleum corporation in 1997 to start his own web marketing company. He began selling Tendenci CMS worldwide in 2004 and released it as an open source product in 2012. 

Schipul describes himself as an amateur photographer as well as a drone builder and pilot, who just wants to "Organize and Connect the World's People" — and "Do Good."

What's New in May for Open Source CMS

2014-01-May-Fusionbox.jpg

Joomla kept its promise to release the latest version of its open source content management system (CMS) in April with yesterday's launch of Joomla 3.3.

The new version offers enhanced security, enables microdata for the first time and replaces MooTools-based JavaScript with jQuery equivalents. The company claims these new features make Joomla 3.3 "the most secure, searchable and fastest-loading Joomla CMS yet, ensuring the most efficient developer experience for Joomla out of the box."

Of course, Joomla wasn't the only free and open source CMS provider to make headlines last month. Hippo launched version 7.9 of its CMS last week. A webinar on what’s new in Hippo CMS 7.9 can be found here. Jahia kicked off the month with the release of Jahia 7, which offers a wide range of new features and functions.

And Fusionbox, a Denver-based web design/build firm, introduced its new open source product, Widgy. The company describes Widgy as "a heterogeneous tree editor," "well-suited" for use as a CMS, built on Python/Django. The company maintains: 

Widgy integrates with mezzanine CMS to form a system that is easier to use and has more flexibility than other popular systems. As a tree editor, Widgy couples with mezzanine to create and edit pages as if they were branches on a tree."

Fusionbox President and founder Alexander Groth the company's CMS is "not just an HTML editor" and predicted its "intuitive drag-and-drop interface will appeal to non-technical website owners who want to take control and edit their content."

So what can we expect in the FOSS world this month?

What's New in April for Open Source CMS

Pantheon

San Francisco-based Pantheon expanded the popular web development platform it created for Drupal to WordPress installs this month.

The company's technology, based on a container-based architecture, helps professional developers and designers build and maintain websites and applications. It offers an array of tools like version control, dev/test environments, team management, backups and workflow. (Click image to enlarge.)

Pantheon CEO and co-founder Zack Rosen said the three-year old company initially focused on Drupal because its development team included a number of former Drupal consultants.

But he noted that WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system (CMS), powering over 76 million websites (19% of the web).

"Owing to its simplicity, WordPress has become the de facto Internet publishing tool for businesses with straightforward content management and design requirements," he wrote in a blog post. "We have a huge amount of respect for what the WordPress community has accomplished. We share the same mission: to build a simpler, easier, more powerful and more democratized World Wide Web."

Nuxeo Releases Open Source Box API

Nuxeo just released a new Box API — something it hinted it would do at Nuxeo World in October. The new API is Nuxeo’s contribution to a growing ecosystem of pure cloud and hybrid developments. With it, enterprises can build and support applications that connect to both the Box and Nuxeo platforms.

The release comes, coincidentally, just hours after Box filed for a US initial public offering.

In a statement, Nuxeo CEO and Co-Founder Eric Barroca note Nuxeo decided to build the Box API because the cost of infrastructure is currently low enough for enterprises to develop applications that support their business goals. 

“Box is the leader in cloud-based content collaboration. We took this initiative to support Box developers and open up opportunities for them that were previously unavailable because of the cloud only deployment,” he said.

What's New in March for Open Source CMS

cms usage statistics

A round of applause for Drupal, please. Drupal is now powering more than one million websites worldwide, reinforcing its ranking as one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) on the planet. 

According to BuiltWith Research, Drupal powers more than 12 percent of the world’s top 100,000 websites as measured by traffic. That's still far behind Wordpress, which runs more than 43 percent of those top 100,000 sites. But it's still a significant feat, according to Holly Ross, executive director of the Drupal Association, the nonprofit organization that supports the Drupal open source project.

Ross is clearly enamored with Drupal. "Every day, we hear stories from all over the world about how Drupal is changing individual lives for the better," she effused in a statement.
