MODx is a fork of Etomite; its Tech Preview 1.0 was released on April 21, 2005. MODx is licensed under the GNU GPL, is built in PHP, and uses a MySQL database backend.

If you’re a CSS designer or Ajax aficionado, this is the CMS for you; and if you like what you see today, you’ll love what’s coming.

Techies call MODx a Content Management Framework (CMF): equal parts custom web app builder and Content Management System (CMS). With a flexible API and a robust event override system, MODx makes building engaging web projects straightforward — or changing core functionality without hacking the core code possible. Custom tweaks won’t leave you pulling out your hair when it’s time to upgrade.
