KiWi is a simple Content Management System (CMS).

Unlike other CM systems, the focus of KiWi is on simplicity and ease of use: Everyone should be able to enter text using a mix of HTML (limited for security reasons), BBCode and Wiki-code. It is inspired by Contentor (http://contentor.net/), but the implementation will be perl-based and use PostgreSQL as a backend (although later any database supported by DBI should work).

Unlike most WiKi applications, KiWi will support a hierarchical organisation of content. KiWi will also hide links to non-existing pages to users that don't have the permissions to create the missing article.

Uploading of images and attachments (files) are also planned. KiWi will probably use ImageMagick (or a library with similar functionality) to create thumbnails automatically.

KiWi will use HTML::Tidy (or something similar) to produce valid XHTML from the data entered by users.

Of course, full HTTP/1.1 support (cache- and search-engine friendlyness) and support for "nice" URIs (see http://w3.org/Provider/Style/URI) is planned.

KiWi will rely on the web server for user authentication, but ACLs to access control to individual functions are planned.
