Why choose Ratatöskr?

Ratatöskr was developed to make your website unique. Ratatöskr makes it easy to write your very own templates and therefore gives you many freedoms in designing your website. The template language looks a lot like HTML/XML and should therefore be easy to learn, if you already know how to write HTML.

Ratatöskr also gives you a powerful plugin API that lets you extend it, if you are missing a feature.

Ratatöskr was designed as a CMS that delivers a website in multiple languages. You can translate nearly everything: Articles, Tags, Sections. And if you are using the custom_translations plugin, you can even translate your templates!
