Drupal is an open-source content management framework used to build websites and applications. The software allows for the creation of user-friendly, agile digital experiences without knowledge of coding languages. The platform’s strength is its flexibility; it can handle a variety of content types including text, graphics, video, and web services integration. Built on a PHP framework with MySQL or PostgreSQL databases it remains highly extensible through modules that are created by the community. Drupal's back-end interface lets users customize page layouts and manage site structure and presentation while offering role-based permissions for different users within an organization.
