Introduction to Bricolage Published by Perl.com

Perl.com has published the first in a series of articles I’ve promised to write, “Content Management with Bricolage.” The article is targeted at organizational decision makers who need to evaluate Bricolage as part of their selection of a content management solution. So I’ve spent some time discussing what content management is and how Bricolage fits in. I mention a lot of other CMSes as for comparative purposes, to try to really give people a feel for how Bricolage can meet their needs.

I also go over some of Bricolage’s most important features, such as multisite management, document modeling, Perl templating, meaningful URLs, workflow, and any number of outputs via “output channels.” The article concludes with a list of sites known to be managed by Bricolage, as well as the promise for more.

The next article in the series will cover installation and configuration. Subsequent articles will cover document analysis and modeling, Mason templating, and fun with the SOAP server. Enjoy!
