OpenForum is a web application server that can be edited while running, and in the browser. Similar to how a wiki works, OpenForum can be edited by any authorised editor, but rather than just being able to create content, an editor can also create web services.

Anatomy of a Page

OpenForum is built around the concept of pages. Each page has a URL eg. /OpenForum/Sandbox. The content for the page is contained in a directory and contains a number of standard files that define its content and its behaviour.
