dotCMS now runs Ruby, Python, PHP, Groovy, JavaScript

Enterprise class wCMS give web developers breakthrough flexibility

dotCMS, the leading Java Web CMS, released a new scripting plugin and engine that allows users to embed and use common scripting languages within the dotCMS itself.  The plugin is designed to allow developers who are familiar with other scripting languages to build dynamic, content driven web pages and applications and manage them through the dotCMS interface.  Scripting developers can have access to the dotCMS content repository through standard contentAPIs and mix and mashup scripting and content in their applications.

“It is really the best of both worlds”, say Jason Tesser, a lead developer for dotCMS and authors of the plugin.  “It allows content owners to manage content within a structured, enterprise class CMS and web developers to leverage what they already know to build rich content driven applications.”

“Long story short, I just deployed a complete php app - pastebin (www.pastebin.com) - via webDAV into dotCMS.  It is permissioned, versioned, managed and served in dotCMS.  Now that is just cool.”

While considered beta code, the scripting plugin is extremely usable.  To learn more about the plugin, visit dotCMS.org.  Additionally, there are two blog posts that describe how to get started with the plugin.
