Slash is a database-driven portal system that uses Apache/mod_perl and MySQL. It offers a database abstraction layer that makes it easy to port to additional databases. It has been programmed to use persistance for a good deal of its variables to increase speed and efficiency. It was designed for running large portals but can be used for smaller personal web logs as well. Slash has a wide variety of features, including extremely broad customizability options, templates, plugsin, news boards, RSS publishing, an advanced comment system and personal journals for all users.
