TurnKey Joomla Appliance is a server appliance for the Joomla! content management system. It is designed to be easy to use and easy to maintain. Security patches are automatically installed. It provides a Web management interface, configuration console, and AJAX Web shell. To minimize footprint the appliance is built from the ground up with the minimum required components. It runs everywhere thanks to multiple build formats, including an installable live CD, a VMDK with OVF support, and an Amazon EC2 AMI.
TinyNews is a simple news/article publishing system for Web sites. Its main feature is that it doesn't require a database, so it's ideal for smaller sites where a full blown CMS would be too much. It provides search engine friendly URLs, RSS feeds, and a WYSIWYG editor with a file manager.
Movable Type is a powerful, multi-user blogging platform. It's widely used as a business blogging tool thanks to the ease with which you can create multiple blog sites. It has a large community and many add-ons available. It's written in Perl and tends to be a bit difficult to install, unless of course you use the JumpBox. This JumpBox provides a basic installation of Movable Type setup with a single blog on the root URL of the system. It's highly recommended that you keep that blog and customize it for your needs rather than starting from scratch. From there, you can add other blogs fairly easily. This JumpBox is based on the 1.1 JumpBox Platform and includes a backup system that supports archiving the state of the JumpBox to NFS, Windows file shares, and Amazon S3.
CMME (Content Management Made Easy) is a Web content management system that aims to be easy to use, doesn't have many requirements, and is still reasonably flexible. It doesn't need a database, doesn't have extensive administrative needs, and works more or less like a wiki. New pages can be made on the fly, rather than through an administrative page.
PottyMouth transforms completely unstructured and untrusted text to valid, nice-looking, completely safe XHTML. PottyMouth is designed to handle input text from non-technical, potentially careless, or malicious users. It produces HTML that is completely safe, programmatically and visually, to include on any Web page. You don't need to make your users read any instructions before they start typing. They don't even need to know that PottyMouth is being used.
Inserit is a content management system specially suited for designers and other non-programmers. Its main goal is to provide a codeless CMS for the most creative designers. The content is stored in a central server and distributed through Web services to your site. Designers can integrate the components through Dreamweaver.
Drupal is a powerful Web content management system that allows an individual or community of users to easily publish and maintain a Web site. Drupal has a large community supporting it that has created many modules for common tasks that you would want to perform on a Web site. Running a JumpBox allows you to be up and running with this software in minutes on any operating system. It carries other benefits such as portability across computing environments, a Web-based admin console to simplify administration, and a built-in automated backup system to protect your work.
migratedata allows you to write a simple XML file to define how to copy data from one database to another, possibly performing very simple transformations on the way. It is immediately able to help you migrate a PostNuke Web site to a WordPress one, and to perform any other transformations you will need to create your own XML spec file (which is reasonably simple).
