Things and Stuff Wiki - An organically evolving personal wiki knowledge base with an on-the-fly taxonomy containing topic outlines, descriptions, notes and breadcrumbs, with links to sites, systems, software, manuals, organisations, people, articles, guides, slides, papers, books, comments, videos, screencasts, webcasts, scratchpads and more. Quality varies drastically. Use the Table of Contents to navigate long pages, use the Small-ToC and Tiny-ToC header links on longer pages. Not that mobile friendly atm. #tnswiki on freenode IRC for feedback chat, or see About for login and further information. / et / em

Note; reworking..

Introduction

Drupal started out in 2001 as a forum content management system (CMS), but has evolved into a strong middle-of-the-road content management framework (CMF). Drupal Core and Drupal.org contribited modules are all GPL v2. Its framework benefits from a well-balanced module, development ecosystem. There are a variety of basic levels of abstraction, with fields, entities, bundles for content, and hooks pretty much all the way down that other modules and themes can work with. Bunches of module state+configuration can be saved as a Feature, and make files and install profiles are used to form Distributions for building and provisioning new sites.
