Cadre The Configurable Abstract Document Relationship Engine

Cadre is a website framework built on the principle that everything is a post. It's an experiment to see how much of the familiar CMS infrastructure (galleries, blogs, forums, wikis, whatever) can be emulated—and perhaps even improved—using ideas from operating system theory and object-oriented programming.

So far, Cadre has been proven to be quite flexible, supporting a variety of applications (including MUCKs, message boards, wikis, bug trackers, blogs, and project management systems) without difficulty or any modification to the platform itself. Best of all, everything remains in one simple, normalized table, so interlinking between sections, recursively generating lists, and reusing code is perfectly natural and simple.

The purpose of this section is to foster development and maintain documentation for the Cadre system.

Cadre Plans
