INTRODUCTION TO KWC (KOALA WEB COMPONENTS)
The goal of Kwc is to create a CMS (classical frontend that get's edited in a backend) by providing re-usable components.
The Kwc backend is implemented using Kwf (Zend+ExtJS). The Kwc frontend is implemented from scratch for performance and flexibility reasons.
A component is the smallest piece of a frontend page. One page consists of many components:
- page component: main component shown in the content area of the page. Typically Paragraphs (that allow any combination of other components)
- content: text, image, image enlarge
- header (eg. image for logo)
