GLAMkit - the web content platform for galleries, libraries, archives and museums

What is GLAMkit?

GLAMkit is a free, open-source content platform for the cultural sector. It’s designed from the ground up to be robust and flexible, so that you can use it out-of-the-box to manage articles, events, blogs, visitor information and collections online, or extend it to produce a bespoke content publishing system.

Our goal is for GLAMkit to be the best museum content platform in the world, and you can help make that happen.

Under the hood

GLAMkit is built on top of Django, “the web framework for perfectionists with deadlines”. Django in turn uses Python, a powerful and easy-to-use 'glue’ language, which makes it faster than ever to integrate 3rd-party systems.

The GLAMkit source code is available on gitHub, and released under the BSD license.

But wait!

We have some exciting news. It’s a big deal. See the blog post for details.

Who’s behind it?

GLAMkit is an initiative of the Interaction Consortium and continues to improve with every project we work on in the cultural sector. GLAMkit also contains contributions from users around the world.
