Prometheus - Coming Soon!
Website Delivery Engine
What is Prometheus?
Prometheus is a high performance (W)ebsite (D)elivery (E)ngine (WDE) designed to make website development easier for both programmers and end users. At its core Prometheus is a system soley dedicated to delivering websites and provides an access security model, site templating, page support, scripting language access, permalinks and a full module (plugin) API that makes building custom addons easy whether you are using a compiled language or a scripting language. Prometheus is completely database driven so database access is a native feature and makes for quicker page scripting and module development. The WDE's high performance lends itself to being a native web server extension (ie: ISAPI for IIS and an Apache Module for the Apache Web Server). Scripting language support is provided as extensions to the system.
