What Is Wagtail CMS?

Most websites use what’s called a content management system, or CMS for short. A CMS is used to make it easier to update and manage a website once it’s been designed by a team of web developers like us. There are hundreds of different CMS options available, and Wagtail CMS is one of them. We believe a CMS should be powerful and well equipped while also being easy to use, streamlined and lightweight. This is why we use Wagtail CMS. Wagtail CMS is an open source, community trusted CMS that has virtually limitless extensibility.

If you’re interested in technical specifications, Wagtail CMS is built on Python, one of the fastest growing programming languages out there. Beyond its Python source, Wagtail CMS uses the Django framework, which is screaming fast and security focused. There’s a lot more we can say about Wagtail CMS, but that’s the basics.
