ProcessWire is a free PHP content management system and framework (open source CMS/CMF) built to save you time and work the way you do. Stop trying to bend other open source CMS platforms to your will – ProcessWire provides simpler and stronger control over your pages, fields, templates and markup at any scale. And it provides a powerful template system that works the way you already do.
ProcessWire’s open source jQuery-inspired API is the best, making content management easy and enjoyable. Managing content and developing a site in ProcessWire is shockingly simple–and fun–compared to what you may be used to. With all custom fields, the best jQuery-inspired API, and a powerful selector engine, ProcessWire CMS will rise to any task.
Your design and development process won’t be interrupted by ProcessWire – it’s built to adapt to your way of doing things, not the other way around. ProcessWire gives you the tools to get at your data, but you make the markup. You never have to design a site for ProcessWire, and the system won’t impose any limitations upon your site’s design or the designer. ProcessWire is a system that you can feel good about handing the keys over to the client because it’s easy for them to use and easy to support.
ProcessWire’s user interface is always focused on the task at hand. If you are editing a page, then the tools present on the screen are all specific to that end. ProcessWire does not leave the user with the impression that they have to learn a new application. It’s something they already know.
While many CMSs use a modular architecture, ProcessWire takes the approach further in that the CMS itself is a group of modules built on top of the ProcessWire framework. Modules are not an afterthought or an extra, they are the system. As such, the system is well thought out and designed to be as simple and easy as possible.
