OpenSourceCMS - test drive content management systems

Filed under
Software

There are a fair few free software and open source content management system (CMS) projects out there, and finding the one that best suits your needs isn’t always an easy task.

Of course it’s not too difficult to download and install them, but sometimes it would be nice to test drive some without having to go through the installation dance. That is exactly the problem that OpenSourceCMS.com tries to solve.

It offers an impressive array of choices of CMSs to try that are divided into several categories - portals, blogs, ecommerce, groupware, forums and so forth. You can click any CMS in the list to jump straight to a working demo install of it. In almost all cases you’ll also get access to the administration features of your chosen CMS so you can evaluate each one fully.

So what's an open source advocate who wants to work with web applications to do? You turn to an open source alternative, of course. Let's take a look at three of them. Read more

Hackable voice-controlled speaker and IoT controller hits KS

SeedStudio’s hackable, $49 and up “ReSpeaker” speaker system runs OpenWrt on a Mediatek MT7688 and offers voice control over home appliances. The ReSpeaker went live on Kickstarter today and has already reached 95 percent of its $40,000 funding goal with 29 days remaining. The device is billed by SeedStudio as an “open source, modular voice interface that allows us to hack things around us, just using our voices.” While it can be used as an Internet media player or a voice-activated IoT hub — especially when integrated with Seeed’s Wio Link IoT board — it’s designed to be paired with individual devices. For example, the campaign’s video shows the ReSpeaker being tucked inside a teddy bear or toy robot, or attached to plant, enabling voice control and voice synthesis. Yes, the plant actually asks to be watered. Read more
