    About Drupal

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    The Onion, The Spread Firefox, Ourmedia, KernelTrap, The Defective by Design campaign: Do these above mentioned names make any sense for you?Well, they are all the names of high-traffic websites….but apart from that?

    Well, they are all bound by a common thread…they all use Drupal as their web application framework or blogging engine.

    So what Drupal actually is?
    Drupal is a software package that is

    * Free o download and use
    * Written in PHP
    * Open-source system
    * Distributed under the GPL
    * Maintained and developed by a community of thousands of users and developers across the globe.
    * Allows an individual or an online community to publish, manage and organize a content rich website.

    The background

    The credit for writing this software---today’s most popular tool for building online communities goes to Dries Buytaert. The name of the software has significance; the word Drupal has its origin in the Dutch word, “druppel” or Drop. Now Drop in Dutch also stands for Village or community. So the community aspect of the software has always been emphasized.
