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 sourcecode.

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.
