Kajona is a content management framework based on PHP5 and published as an open source project under the LGPL license.

Kajona is

  • a web application framework
  • a web content management system (CMS)
  • flexible und modular
  • easy to use

Kajona provides

  • strict seperation of content and layout
  • complete web-based administration
  • AJAX-support and drag'n'drop features

Kajona needs

  • a webserver (Apache, IIS, ...)
  • PHP 5 (>= 5.3)
  • Database (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MariaDB via mysql-drivers, Oracle)

Due to the modular design the system can be extended and adapted individually quite quick and easy. With a multiplicity of modules such as news, downloads, picture galleries or an integrated search, complex internet portals can be realized with Kajona³ within shortest time. The flexible and granular right management secures the individual access options of the users. Special value is the usability of Kajona³. The end user - in addition, the system administrator - is able to use Kajona³ without a long training period. The portal editor offers the possibility of working with site-contents directly in the later layout (inside-editing). By the support of modern technologies such as UTF-8, XML, RSS and a template-engine, Kajona³ can cover the usual requirements to a web page.
