Thunder CMS

Online publishing made easy with Drupal and Thunder - the Drupal-based CMS by publishers for publishers.

Thunder is a Drupal based online publishing solution that has been developed for the publishing industry. It builds upon the current Drupal functionality, lots of useful modules from publishers and industry partners, and the possibility to develop and add new functionality very easily.

Thunder was first published in 2016 by Hubert Burda Media. Behind them are media entrepreneurs, developers and industry partners from all over the world - the Thunder Coalition. Anyone can install Thunder and use or customize existing modules. The CMS is provided under the "GNU General Public License Version 2 or later".
