Kotti is a high-level, Pythonic web application framework based on Pyramid_ and SQLAlchemy_.
It includes an extensible Content Management System called the Kotti CMS (see below).
Kotti is most useful when you are developing applications that
- have complex security requirements,
- use workflows, and/or
- work with hierarchical data.
Built on top of a number of best-of-breed software components,
most notably Pyramid_ and SQLAlchemy_,
Kotti introduces only a few concepts of its own,
thus hopefully keeping the learning curve flat for the developer.

You can try out the Kotti CMS on
Kotti's demo page_.
Kotti CMS is a content management system that's heavily inspired by Plone_.
Its main features are:
User-friendliness: editors can edit content where it appears;
thus the edit interface is contextual and intuitive
WYSIWYG editor: includes a rich text editor
Responsive design: Kotti builds on
looks good both on desktop and mobile
Templating: you can extend the CMS with your own look & feel
with almost no programming required
Add-ons: install a variety of add-ons and customize them as well
as many aspects of the built-in CMS by use of an INI configuration
Security: the advanced user and permissions management is
intuitive and scales to fit the requirements of large organizations
Internationalized: the user interface is fully translatable,
Unicode is used everywhere to store data
Kotti is offered under the BSD-derived
