Drupal is the English pronunciation for the Dutch word 'druppel' which stands for 'drop'. Drupal is a content management/discussion engine suitable to setup or build a content driven or community driven website. We aim towards easy installation, excessive configuration and fine-grained maintenance capabilities. Due to its modular design Drupal is flexible and easy to adapt or extend. Drupal is written using PHP. The source code is available under terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) .
Now I know this is difficult to quantify, but Drupal just feels like a much more professional project than PostNuke, PHPNuke, or similar projects. It reminds me a bit of the feeling I got when I looked at Scoop a while back.
Here are the cool things that caught my eye about Drupal:
- Blogger API support
- RSS all over the place
- Google API support
- Documentation that doesn't suck
Anyway, give it a look if you're in the market for a good CMS/discussion system. I am.
