Welcome to Zope - a new generation of software that we call a web application platform. Like web application servers, Zope provides very high performance and a strong framework for dynamic applications.
|This QuickStart is built with Zope objects -- take a look!|
Zope, though, is distinguished by its integrated object database which, when combined with a revolutionary object model, provides a completely unique facility for servicing content managers and web application developers. This outline, implemented in Zope, talks about the various strengths of the Zope platform and some of the other products available for it.
Zope Documents provide a powerful system for dynamic content delivery. Documents add rich programming to HTML, including iterations, conditional testing, variable insertion, access to HTTP headers, cookies, and more. Since these rich HTML templates are objects, your users can undo mistakes, work on Documents in private Sessions, and take advantage of Zope's built-in security. These rich programming additions are known as the Document Template Markup Language (DTML), a server-side-include style syntax.
