Drupal is a free and open source content-management framework written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License, provides a back-end framework for at least 2.2% of all Web sites worldwide – ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites. Systems also use Drupal for knowledge management and for business collaboration.
The standard release of Drupal, known as Drupal core, contains basic features common to content-management systems. These include user account registration and maintenance, menu management, RSS feeds, taxonomy, page layout customization, and system administration. The Drupal core installation can serve as a simple Web site, a single- or multi-user blog, an Internet forum, or a community Web site providing for user-generated content.
"The Drupal Overview", a feature of the project web site, describes it as a content management framework Drupal also describes itself as a Web application framework, as it meets the generally accepted feature requirements for such frameworks.
As of January 2017 the Drupal community is composed of more than one million members. Including 105,400 users actively contributing. Resulting in more than 35,800 free modules that extend and customize Drupal functionality, over 2,300 free themes that change the look and feel of Drupal, and at least 1,100 free distributions that allow you to quickly and easily set up a complex, use-specific Drupal in fewer steps.
Although Drupal offers a sophisticated API for developers, basic Web-site installation and administration of the framework require no programming skills.
Drupal runs on any computing platform that supports both a Web server capable of running PHP and a database to store content and configuration.
