Campsite is a free and open source multilingual content management system for news websites. Its localizable user interface was built with journalists, editors and publishers in mind, rather than computer experts, and it can be configured to suit different profiles of end users. Campsite follows a newspaper publishing model, so it structures sites by default as Publications, Issues, Sections and Articles, rather than nodes or objects. Campsite is intended for medium-to-large-size online news publications, but it can be used to manage content for smaller sites too. Campsite allows the management of multiple journalists and publications from a single interface.
News sites running on Campsite
Campsite has been deployed by more than 50 organisations from Sourcefabric parent organization the Media Development Loan Fund, as shown on its homepage to smaller sites like the La Salle University Collegian Newspaper. International sites displaying a 'Powered by Campsite' badge include elPeriodico de Guatemala.
Integration with Campcaster
It is possible to integrate the Campsite CMS with the Campcaster broadcast automation system by linking to audio clips hosted on the Campcaster audio file storage server, as used at Kala Radio, a station in Kotor, Montenegro.
