ZOO is a flexible and powerful content application builder to manage your content. It provides a much improved Joomla experience. The key feature is the ability to create your very own custom content types. You define what a type is made up of – e.g. text, images or a file download. Any combination is imaginable! You bring the content, ZOO brings the elements to structure it and make it look good!
ZOO moves from simply being a CCK to an Application Builder. Apps are extensions for ZOO which are optimized for different purposes and types of content catalogs. ZOO offers a wide range of apps to get you started right away. There is a blog, a product catalog, a cookbook, a business directory, a documentation, a download archive and a movie database app!
By now ZOO has developed a thriving ecosystem, with new ZOO extensions appearing regularly. It also integrates well with many popular Joomla extensions. Besides the ZOO component itself offers additional modules and plugins. They allow a seamless integration into Joomla and provide a richer tool set to create your website.
