The Imprint CMS (Content Management System) aims to emulate the key features of popular existing CMS applications such as Wordpress, Drupal, Magento, etc. This will be a lightweight alternative that can be used to kick start a digital presence by producing landing pages, product pages, and blog posts with ease. Individuals will be able to register and create their own account that will be secured in a database that they can use to login and manage their pages and posts. In addition, they will have the option of changing multiple settings such as the theme and color scheme of their website.

I will be developing this application from scratch and utilizing the software development lifecycle to gather requirements, design the features, code, test, and deploy the application to the web. The overall goal is to be able to setup a website with the main features that can dynamically create pages on the fly and edit them as one wishes. I want to be able to experience all levels of development from the front-end, back-end, and server-side to create a single web application that is usable and provides value to users.
