Our original site, built on Plone. I had built applications on Zope 2 and enjoyed the pythonic flavor of it so I thought to try out the CMS built on top of it. I guess you would have to say that ZODB was the first NOSQL database I had used, and I could see the attraction.
Overall it was a fun framework to build on, but at the time it was hard, expensive, or both, to find hosting that offered the needed WSGI protocol so I moved on to easier to deploy frameworks. Nowadays with Docker it’s not really an issue anymore, just build an image and go.
Plone is interesting because of the ZODB object database built into it. Python is our standard language for any development that ddoes not have strict performance requirementsContact Us
