Extend Zotonic how you like

Zotonic is built to be extended. Pretty much everything in Zotonic is a Module . We already made lots of modules for API's like Facebook, or Twitter and for sending and receiving e-mail.  Are you missing something? Build it and make Zotonic even better. It's as easy as Pi.

Zotonic is build on Erlang

Building Zotonic with Erlang was a deliberate decision. It's fault tolerant, scalable and all code can be upgraded without downtime, which is pretty handy when you can't afford any. We also believe Erlang ensures a certain quality guarantee for your product and for your developers skills.

Hi Mike, we are Erlang fans

The 'bit' with the telephone and 'Hello Mike' is a quip from ' Erlang - The Movie ', where Erlang is explained by 'Mike'.

Young, Serious and Open Source with conviction

Zotonic is a young project, but from the beginning it has been operational for several mission critical web sites. It's not a pet project, it's a serious business project.

It's also Open Source, published under the Apache 2 licence . We believe that's the best way to continuously extended and improved the project with the best developers from all around the world.

Front end development made easy

We enhanced the Django Template Language. We made a version of DTL that's complete, fast and consistent. It'll make implementation for any platform a breeze.
