Now that Cutelyst is allowing me to write web applications with the tools I like, I can use it to build the kind of web applications I need but am not fine with using the existing ones…
WordPress is a great software, but it’s written in PHP, which is not a language I like, and there are many other software like this written in all sorts of languages but C++/Qt/Cutelyst, so why not?
This first release is a very shine one, it allows for templating, static pages and posts (without comments) and even a RSS feed.
To make things more interesting CMlyst has a separate library, this library abstracts the Content Management part, allowing for different backends to be written, the current one is based on QSettings files, but it’s very easy to write one for SQL, git who knows 😛
I have not measured it speed against WordPress or any other CMS, it probably won’t be fair. But if you are curious I have run it against weighttp and it gives me 4k req/s on a page show, 2,5k req/s on last posts listing and 6,5k on RSS feed delivering, this on a Core2Duo 2.4Ghz, using ~10MB of RAM.
Give it a try!
