FarCry CMS is a popular open-source content management system for CFML built with FarCry Core.[2] In addition to standard CMS features (such as menu management, system administration and page layout customization), FarCry's features[3] also include:

  • Role-based Security: providing the ability to secure individual views, and options to secure branches of content to specific groups of users.
  • Object Relational Mapper: for database connectivity including My SQL, Postgres, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle. No SQL is needed.
  • Administrative Webtop: a secured and completely configurable interface for administrative menus and maintenance screens.
  • Friendly URL Configuration: for generating user-friendly urls by leveraging web servers like Apache and IIS.
  • Web Feeds: the ability to generate RSS, ATOM and iTunes feeds for syndication of content types. Feeds can be categorised and filtered to provide more select feeds for users.
  • Caching & Performance: automatic caching of calls to the database to improve performance. Results of any view can be cached to generate complex, composite pages and then retrieve them instantly from memory. Embedded views that change will flush and re-generate parent pages automatically.
  • Content Hierarchies: Out-of-the-box FarCry uses content hierarchies to manage the site structure and category taxonomies. The Nested Tree Model service allows hierarchical content like a website's IA to be constructed and managed.
  • Formtools Engine: Formtools are components that represent the behaviour of individual properties when being displayed or rendered in a form. A property might be as simple as a text input field or a complex library picker. The framework ships with a large dictionary of choices, and custom components can be built and distributed. Form tools allows very rich user interfaces to be built very quickly.
  • Plugin Architecture: Every aspect of a project can be repackaged and used in another project as a plugin. This might be the entire project or just a small part of it. Most applications are combinations of several plugins. Community plugins include solutions for Google Maps; blogging; content management; and free text search engines.

The FarCry Framework is actively maintained by Daemon Internet Consultants.
