ImpressPages is an open-source PHP framework with built-in content editor. Features include MVC engine, inline editing and drag&drop interface. It is distributed under the GNU GPL v.3.0 and MIT licences.

The first stable version of ImpressPages came out in 2009. As of April 2014, version 4.0 has been released [1][2][3][4] marking the shift from CMS to a PHP framework.


ImpressPages was developed by three Lithuanian entrepreneurs -- Audrius Jankauskas, Mangirdas Skripka, and Mindaugas Stankaitis. The idea was born in 2007, and after two years of development, ImpressPages alpha was released. In 2011, ImpressPages participated at the business accelerator "Difference Engine"[5][6] which led to an investment from a venture capital fund Practica Capital in 2013.[7][8]
