PHP-based, semantic website revision system

Sovix is the PHP-based, extensible, customizable, semantic website revision system. If this seems to be a bit of a mouthful, an easier explanation is Sovix is a free Emacs-like WRS, the text editor Sovix was developed in. Some of the features of Sovix include:

  • Mechanisms to receive the software code over network protected by the GNU Affero General Public License.
  • Semantically valid HTML and XHTML markup.
  • Agnostic RDBMS support for PostgreSQL and MySQL via Sovix web template engine.
  • Cross platform/web server/browser compatible.
  • Online documentation available direct from Sovix, including a tutorial for new users.
