Projects / Cascade


Cascade is a Web-based content management system. It's based around the idea of organizing resources into a hierachy of categories, much like Yahoo. Some features include generating static or dynamic HTML, allowing user comments on ratings on resources, design abstraction through templates, suggested addition and update management, an auto-generated "What's New" page, support for related categories and virtual subcategories, and more. It can use Postgres or MySQL as its SQL database.
