A CMS built for developers
and content editors

django CMS was originally conceived by web developers frustrated with the technical and security limitations of other systems. Its lightweight core makes it easy to integrate with other software and put to use immediately, while its ease of use makes it the go-to choice for content managers, content editors and website admins.

For the Developer

Developers can integrate other existing Django applications rapidly, or build brand new compatible apps that take advantage of django CMS's publishing and editing features.

For the content editor

django CMS is user friendly and has a very intuitive drag and drop interface.
It's built around the needs of multi-lingual publishing by default, not as an afterthought: all websites, pages and content can exist in multiple language versions.
