» Banana Dance DocumentationBanana Dance Details

Banana Dance is an open-source PHP/MySQL-based program. It is designed to combine the simplicity of wiki-publishing software with the versatility of a CMS. The program also promotes community-building through organized and user-rated commenting features.

Highly flexible with theme-integration and extension availability (not to mention a far better dancer than any other software we've seen) Banana Dance can be used for all types of purposes, whether it be to create an entire website (like this one), a product owner's manual (like ppSD2 did), or an interactive "article"-posting website.
