The ImpressCMS Framework (IPF) is a native framework for ImpressCMS allowing easy and rapid development of module for ImpressCMS, an open source Community Management System under GPL license (http://www.impresscms.org).

This session demonstrates key concepts off the framework: Using imBuilding module to create a new module in 2 minutes, main features of the framework, which are creation, edition and deletion of objects, listing objects in a loist view fully sortable, with filters, CSV obbjects exports, permissions management, notification, comments, etc...

Using the ImpressCMS Persistable Framework, a developer can create a secure and robust module very quckly. IPF takes care of 80% of the most common features of any modules, and allow the developer to focus on what really matters!
