“Today we’re announcing something brand new, a new approach to WordPress, and open sourcing the code behind it. The project, codenamed Calypso, is the culmination of more than 20 months of work by dozens of the most talented engineers and designers I’ve had the pleasure of working with,” said Matt Mullenweg, founder and CEO of Automaticc.
It’s important to note that Calypso was launched for WordPress.com, which is the hosted version of Automaticc’s web-building platform. Anyone who creates and manages a website on WordPress.com will automatically see the new interface the next time they log into their dashboard.
- 100% open-source platform, with developers encouraging the community to view the Calypso source code and offer suggestions on improvements.
- Supports multiple websites, meaning you can manage dozens or even hundreds of WordPress websites straight from a single interface.
- Features a Responsive Web Design (RWD) consisting of proportion-based grids to allow a seamless, fully functional experience on all devices.
- Social media integration.
- Drag-and-drop functionality for image/video uploads.
- Supported by all major web browsers, with the exception of IE.
