Package: KiWi Content Management System
System name: kiwi
Type: non-GNU

KiWi will be a simple, WiKi-like Content Management System. 

Unlike other CM systems, the focus of KiWi is on simplicity and ease of use:
Everyone should be able to enter text using a mix of HTML (limited for security 
reasons), BBCode and Wiki-code. It is inspired by Contentor 
(, but the implementation will be perl-based and use 
PostgreSQL as a backend (although later any database supported by DBI should 

Unlike most WiKi applications, KiWi will support a hierarchical organisation of 
content. KiWi will also hide links to non-existing pages to users that don\\\'t 
have the permissions to create the article.

Uploading of images and attachments (files) are also planned. KiWi will 
probably use ImageMagick to create thumbnails automatically.

KiWi will use HTML::Tidy to produce 100% valid XHTML (if the templates don\\\'t 
introduce invalid constructs, of course).
Support for multiple templates (based on the document path) is planned, too.
Of course, full HTTP/1.1 support (cache- and search-engine friendlyness) and 
support for \\\"nice\\\" URIs (see is planned.
KiWi will rely on the web server for user authentication, but ACLs to access 
control to individual functions are planned.

There\'s no source code yet; I plan to start coding using the Savannah CVS 

Other Software Required:
* perl & modules from CPAN.
* Apache (with mod_perl) will be the preferred web server.
* PostgreSQL will be the preferred DB backend.
* ImageMagick might be used for image handling (and automatic conversion , esp. 
from compressed GIF to PNG or uncompressed GIF) and thumbnail creation.
* gzip
