Orchard – a free, open source, community-focused Content Management System built on the ASP.NET MVC platform.

Orchard is built on a modern architecture that puts extensibility up-front, as its number one concern. All components in Orchard can be replaced or extended. Content is built from easily composable building blocks. Modules extend the system in a very decoupled fashion, where a commenting module for example can as easily apply to pages, blog posts, photos or products. A rich UI composition system completes the picture and ensures that you can get the exact presentation that you need for your content.

The mission is to empower our users and foster a dedicated and diverse community that builds the CMS that we all want to use.

Developers of the system divided the architecture into several main parts:
– Content Item – the basic element of the system storing content. Most often it is associated with a specific URL address. An example of a Content Item is a blog or a single page for storing content.
– Content Type – content type, defines the Content Item class.
– Content Part – a component of the Content Item, applicable to various classes. This way, it is possible to use common functionality (e.g. comments) for different types of content (blog, single page, etc.).
– Content Field – each content may also contain a series of fields that will then be filled in by the CMS user.

Orchard is delivered under the .NET Foundation. It is licensed under a New BSD license, which is approved by the OSI.
