MidCOM, the Midgard Components Framework, is an MVC framework for the Midgard persistent storage platform. It provides mechanisms for building a Web site using components without much need for writing code to glue all this together. The administration site gets built automatically by using those components. Goodies like a caching engine and sub-requests make site building even easier.
Midgard is a persistent storage framework. It provides an object-oriented and replicated environment for building data-intensive applications. It ships with a MidCOM content management system built on the Midgard framework. MidCOM's features include Web-based authoring WYSIWYG interfaces and a component interface for installing additional Web functionality. Midgard is built on the GNOME stack of libraries like GLib and libgda, and has language bindings for C, Python, and PHP. Communications between applications written in the different languages happen over D-Bus. The CMS runs on the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) platform.
