Newspapers Running on Drupal

  1. Promoting open source software CMS as an alternative to proprietary entreprise software for professional newspaper web publishing
  2. Promoting agile, community driven development for small, medium and large news organisations
  3. Creating a user-centered platform for news, debate and sharing online

Drupal is a free software package for publishing, managing and organizing a wide variety of content on a website. Drupal is open-source software distributed under the General Public License and is maintained and developed by a community of thousands of users and developers. Drupal is free to download and use.

A Few Examples

These news sites represent different approaches to online news media production, but they share a common commitment to the platform. Study their websites, and, if you want to know more consider getting involved.

These are just a few examples. A growing number of newspapers and news organizations choose Drupal as their platform for online publishing.

»There’s no doubt, Drupal really has momentum in the developer community. More and more are coming on board ... of course, great reviews from IBM developerWorks and the likes help, but the spreading of Drupal as a serious publishing platform is a result of the work being done. It speaks for itself, in my opinion.«
