Joomla is a CMS developed from Mambo in 2005. It was created after a disagreement between the lead developers and the company coordinating the development. Today, the majority of developers in the community devote their work to Joomla, which clearly tips the scales in its favour.

This tool chiefly stands out for the user-friendliness of its admin interface. The mantra is to “give full product control to non-technicians”. Page creation, categorisation, searches, access stats, meaningful URLs and a multitude of modules are integrated directly and do not require any special knowledge for their implementation. In version 3.0, Joomla has further increased its professionalism, with native multi-site management, better multilingual management and, above all, revisited front office interfaces (with modifications now possible from this channel) and back office interfaces based on Twitter Bootstrap, providing for mobile compatibility, drag and drop functions and more.
Joomla is a 100% community based solution published under the GNU GPL.
Joomla is written in PHP and uses a MySQL database. It now supports PostgreSQL databases.
