Hippo CMS

What is Hippo CMS?

Hippo CMS is a Java based, Open Source Web Content Management platform. With strong integrations and a solid architecture based around the separation of concerns, Hippo gives you the flexibility to have full control over your project.

Can I try it out?

Yes! Take a look at our demo. Or look under the hood if you like, we share our source code.

Looking for assistance? You're welcome to ask for help--we have a very active mailing list! Please do check the tutorials and the guidelines first, though.

New here?

Our tutorials will get you up to speed with Hippo development.

Hi, Version 2.14.01-SNAPSHOT of the plugin is not available for you it seems. Easiest way to solve it is to use the released version 2.14.00 instead. Please change that in the root pom.xml.. Jeroen Op 25 okt. 2014 14:37 schreef "Denis K" <kuden...@gmail.com>: Hi, Who can help with this exception.
