Mezzanine is a powerful, consistent, and flexible content management platform. Built using the Django framework, Mezzanine provides a simple yet highly extensible architecture that encourages diving in and hacking on the code. Mezzanine is BSD licensed and supported by a diverse and active community.
In some ways, Mezzanine resembles tools such as Wordpress that provide an intuitive interface for managing pages, blog posts, form data, store products, and other types of content. But Mezzanine is also different. Unlike many other platforms that make extensive use of modules or reusable applications, Mezzanine provides most of its functionality by default. This approach yields a more integrated and efficient platform.
# Install from PyPI $ pip install mezzanine # Create a project $ mezzanine-project myproject $ cd myproject # Create a database $ python manage.py createdb # Run the web server $ python manage.py runserver
Mezzanine will always be available to anyone free of charge, but its ongoing development costs its contributors a significant amount of time and resources. Please give back by donating to the project.

As an added bonus, by hosting with Appsembler, you're also contributing financially back to the continued developement of Mezzanine itself.
