October is a free, open-source and self-hosted content management system (CMS) based on the PHP programming language and Laravel web application framework. It supports MySQL, SQLite and PostgreSQL for the database backend and uses a flat file database for the front end structure. October is more widely used, and growing at a faster rate, than both of its leading flat-file CMS competitors (Jekyll and Grav) combined as of March 2018.
October is conceived as a "back to basics" web platform that makes website creation, design, and editing faster and more intuitive. The October CMS covers an extensive range of capabilities such as users, permissions, and plugins; it can be utilized to build everything from simple promotional sites to powerful web applications. October supports the use of themes.
The platform is generally favoured among developers for having a small learning curve and its unique template system that is easily manageable with version control systems. As of March 2018, October is the second-most starred PHP CMS repository hosted on GitHub.
October is used as a primary CMS platform by studios who have world-famous brands in their portfolios, such as Toyota, KFC and Nestle. The Dallas Museum of Art uses October CMS in their information kiosks. Many of October users are located in United States and Russia furthermore in Europe: Switzerland, France, Netherlands, United Kingdom and other countries.
October takes full advantage of its underlying PHP framework, Laravel, and all of these benefits are intrinsically available to the developer. It also offers some features that make it unique as a platform.
