Calipso 0.3.51

A content management system built on top of Node.js
Calipso was developed to use modules for adding new features and functionality.

For the backend and data storage, Calipso uses MongoDB.

Main features:

  • Integrated scheduler and feeds module in core, allowing you to pull content from any source.
  • Scheduler can call functions exposed by any module, giving fantastic flexibility
  • Scheduler uses the node-cron library, so is easy to configure jobs
  • Any module can expose restful endpoints, so easy to build your own API.
  • The first level of themeing allows any module to render content (unstyled) as blocks, that can then be included by a theme in any section.
  • The second then exposes helper functions in views that allow you to asynchronously grab other content to build your pages.
  • Finally, simple CMS functions allow you to quickly edit what you need to.
  • Built from the ground up on NodeJS, it is very quick.
  • Leveraging MongoDB for the back end, making use of Map Reduce functions for tag cloud and menu generation (so massively scalable!)
  • No caching implemented yet, but the basic CMS can take ~180 hits / second on this home page on a standard PC
  • I18n
