Cody is a platform created to build websites and web applications. It is multi-lingual from the ground up. (We Belgians have 3 offical languages in a country of only 10 million people!)
It is aimed at 2 target audiences: web masters and web developers.
Web developers can easily change their (rich) content, include images and files, or add pages and subpages. It comes with a library where they can upload images and files to be used on their site. And last but not least there is a multi-language form-builder with client and server-side input validation.
Cody is also built for speed. Normal webpages are served without any disk IO, database access, or reading of HTML/CSS/Image files. Static file content is cached, and although there is a SQL backing store for all content and structure, most of it is read into memory at startup. Only while working in the Back-office is there any database interaction.
