Papaya CMS

papaya CMS is a open source content management system, free of charge and complying with open standards like XML as data format, XSLT as templating language, and PHP for programming.


System architecture

papaya CMS is a software build up from a very modular concept, to use it as framework for special applications beside the typical tasks of a content management system.

All texts, configuration data etc. will be stored in a relational database. Media files such as images and videos are located in the file system and will be managed by papaya and referenced as needed.

As many functions (such as database access, authentication, build methods for backend menus, etc.) are defined centrally and can be accessed through an abstraction layer.

papaya CMS is developed in PHP and object-oriented. Data is stored in XML, XSLT as template language is used. The system does not use self-developed or proprietary script or template languages.

Special features

Unlike many other CMS papaya CMS is characterized by the fact that it is available under the GPL on the one side. On the other side a company behind the product is available that provides support and training.


The clear separation of content, layout and formatting of XSL/XSLT can spend papaya accessible websites. All the possibilities of XHTML/HTML can be implemented also with papaya CMS - this is in the hands of the developer. So papaya is an option for accessibility.
