With an interface based largely on WWIV BBS for MS-DOS, Hermes offered an alternative to Red Ryder Host that offered better support for multi-line BBSes and a more complete out-of-the-box configuration. It also offered the ability for SysOps to maintain their BBSes remotely, and offered an application programming interface (API) for external application developers to extend the system.
Hermes continues to be developed, and currently[when?] features a Python API for external development. However, it is only available as a "classic" Mac OS application, so cannot run natively on Mac OS X or Intel Macintosh hardware.
