TomatoCMS: The NEW CMS in Town

7 Jan 2010 Ferado

TomatoCMS is more than likely dead by now, and this is an old post.


Ladies and Gentleman, the moment you have all been waiting for – a new CMS to come into your life and confuse the shit out of you – TomatoCMS. Just when you thought there were enough CMS’ out there to choose from, a new one pops out and says “Hello World.”

All kidding aside, I’m actually quite intrigued by TomatoCMS. Now, I haven’t tested it out yet, but this CMS does sound promising. I know there are better ones out there that you might know about (Drupal), but you should still give this one a try. And here’s why.

Features & Benefits

  • Built using the Zend framework (this is a BIG plus for me) which means you have a solid foundation you can trust.
  • Modules/Plugins are available so that it can be extended – you’re not stuck with vanilla, when you might want some chocolate.
  • Multi-language support. This is great – now you can stop discriminating and allow everyone the ability to read what you have to say.
  • Comes with jQuery. That’s all I’m going to say. Well, no, I’ll add this: Prototype JS blows.

How to get it?

Go to the website. It’s been running slow for me so please be patient.

    @Neville Franks, I apologize, I downloaded TomatoCMS but never got around to uploading it. I’ve been busy writing some software that I’m going to offer soon.

    The reason I liked TomatoCMS is that it is written using the Zend framework. Which is my second favorite framework to work with after Drupal. Honestly, I watch software for about a year or two, just to make sure it’s ready for professional usage. I’m not about to risk a client with something that hasn’t been thoroughly tested.

    What I’ll do is this, I’ll give it a week and then I’ll blog about my experience.

    Yes yes. ZF powered CMS i have been waiting for. In Drupal i really miss OO approach, so our next client will probobly have their site powered by Tomato CMS.
