Zope QuickStart

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.

- DTML Scripting

Zope's DTML is more than just a variable insertion and batch processing language. It also exposes a powerful expression language. While this expression language can be used to compute variables and text complex conditions on the fly, it can also be used to directly call methods on Zope objects. This powerful feature, referred to as DTML Scripting is the first level of advanced web application development in Zope. It is editable through the web, secure, and flexible enough for many applications.
