Dallas Company Interaria Announces a Development Framework for Custom Content Management Systems

The Interaria Web Development Framework is a custom PHP/MySQL code library developed for building database driven web applications that interact with a content management system.

The crucial point is that Interaria's development framework is flexible and does not tie a client to use any specific off-the-shelf CMS solution.

Dallas, Texas-based web design and web application development company Interaria announced today the official launch of the Interaria Web Development Framework which is designed to aid in the development of content management systems for large websites with product catalogs, expiring promotions, news and events listings, member accounts, and document and article libraries. The Interaria Web Development Framework is a custom PHP/MySQL code library developed by the Interaria team for building database driven web applications which can then be fully integrated into a content management system. Unlike many off-the-shelf content management systems, a content management system developed with the Interaria Web Development Framework  will not hinder design choices, future website growth, and the relational management of data variables. 

Off-the-shelf content management systems (CMS) have two downsides that require proper addressing: 1) Template based nature of the layout options for CMS based websites, 2) CMS software's inability to integrate custom coded web applications.

If the CMS for a company's website is developed on top of an existing blog template for instance, it is likely that the client is in fact not receiving a custom design but rather only a customized template. If a company is happy with the design and regards that it communicates their brand identity well, then this may be a very workable solution. Interaria points out that a company, however, does not need to accept design, layout or feature compromises that could be overcome with custom CMS application development. 

The second limitation of using an off-the-shelf CMS is that it limits the management of custom web applications which often turns out to be crucially important to a company's website. The Interaria Web Development Framework exceeds these limitations by being an underlying foundation code for both the CMS and the custom web applications, allowing for them both to be easily integrated together.

James Shields, the founder and leading web developer for Dallas web design & development company Interaria states: "We are not against utilizing off-the-shelf CMS solutions such as WordPress, Joomla or Drupal for their CMS features and blogging functions where these systems are optimal and work best. The crucial point is that Interaria's development framework is flexible and does not tie a client to use any specific off-the-shelf CMS solution, while at the same time fully integrates with custom web applications. We are now in the works of developing a universal admin area system that let's a client control their site's CMS from one control panel regardless of the combination of systems used."
