Samhain13's SiteCore is a website management system created using the Django framework. It was created as a replacement for the SaWALi Web Application library, which is a Pylons application. Like its predecessor, S13SiteCore features User Management, Content Management, File Management, and Database Management systems.

Having had a working website management system in SaWALi, there really was no need to create S13SiteCore. I created S13SiteCore to prove a point— several, actually.
Some time in 2013, I came across some developers that were looking for help and were supposedly able to pay well for that help. But as with many people who pay well, the ones I came across were wont to be very specific with their demands, which happen to include proficiency with Django, Less, and Git.
It's understandable why I did not end up working for them: I was a Pylons guy, who was a CSS2 conservative with a knack for using a no-SQL database, and didn't really care much for version control; because I'm not used to working on large teams. But I couldn't help feeling slighted when a couple of those developers had been dismissive about my choice of framework and database engine— as I was explaining to them why I made those choices.
S13SiteCore is my middle finger raised to those dismissive people and saying, “hey, look! That thing you call your bread and butter? Those are just some of the things I do— and do very well. Now, let me see you try to do the other things that I can do... Like, I don't know— use a different templating library on your Django app? Or write poetry. Or better yet, make a game development framework.”
Perhaps one of these days, I'll write a CodeIgniter implementation of this as well. LOL! Kidding.
