In the world of open source, we expect evolution of CMS into something more robust, functional and more powerful. In the case of Django, the platform itself is already a superb CMS and has been a favorite by top web developers but it is amazing to know when another CMS is built on a framework based on a top CMS. That is the case of Mezannine, a powerful, consistent, and flexible content management platform built using the Django framework.
The Mezzannine using the Django framework uses a simple but very flexible architecture which allows users to easily hack and revise the codes of the CMS. There is also nothing to worry for the Mezzanine is licensed under BSD so no worries when cracking and mod-ing it out and also it has a huge community of users right now so help is very accessible.
Here are the amazing features of Mezzanine:
In-line page editing
Drag-and-drop HTML5 forms builder with CSV export
Twitter and other social network integration
One step blog migration from other blog CMS like WordPress
Wordpress like writing and environment
Integration with 3rd party Apps
Shopping card module for ecommerce site
Built-in Test site
The CMS has tons of features but also mostly found on in other CMS like WordPress and Django itself but what makes Mezzanine shines is that it is built using Django which means its main framework is Phyton and Ruby on Rails.
I saw some sites built using Mezzanine and they are seamlessly beautiful. They are simple yet intricate and the features on the website shows robustness and flexibility. If you are into Ruby on Rails and Phyton then Mezzanine is perfect for you.
Mezzanine is also easy to install with the top domain and hosting providers like GoDaddy and Network Solutions.
