Dear Baypiggies,

I am pleased to announce the release of one project I have been working with
recently and will be working with in the future.
I would be pleased to answer any questions and/or guide you through your
experiments with CubicWeb.
I will also be happy to present it during one of the baypiggies meeting.


What is CubicWeb?

With CubicWeb, the Semantic Web is a construction game!

CubicWeb_ is a semantic web application framework, licensed under the LGPL,
empowers developers to efficiently build web applications by reusing
(called cubes) and following the well known object-oriented design

Its main features are:

    * an engine driven by the explicit data model of the application,
    * a query language named RQL similar to W3C's SPARQL,
    * a selection+view mechanism for semi-automatic XHTML/XML/JSON/text
    * a library of reusable components (data model and views) that fulfill
common needs,
    * the power and flexibility of the Python programming language,
    * the reliability of SQL databases, LDAP directories, Subversion and
Mercurial for storage backends.

Being built since 2000 by an R&D project still going on today, supporting
100,000s of daily visits at some production sites, CubicWeb is a proven end
end solution for semantic web application development that promotes quality,
reusability and efficiency.

The unbeliever will read the quick overview_ of CubicWeb.

The hacker will join development at the forge_.

The impatient will move right away to installation_ and set-up of a CubicWeb
