Cody is a platform created to build websites and web applications. It is multi language from ground up (what did you expect from Belgians having 3 offical languages in a country of good 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, add pages and subpages. They have a library where they can upload their images and files to be used in web pages. And last but not least there is a multi language Form builder with client and server side input validation.
Cody is also build for speed. Normal webpages are served without any disk IO, no database access, no reading of html, css or 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 backoffice there is some database interaction.
