Panopoly is powerful base distribution of Drupal powered by lots of Chaos Tools and Panels magic. The distribution is designed to be both a general foundation for site building and a base framework upon which to build other Drupal distributions (see Drupalcon Portland video) or check out some of its key features (see full list):
- Panels Powered - Woven together functionality from Panels, the Panels In-Place-Editor, Fieldable Panel Panes, PM Existing Pages, Panelizer and a lot of extra special sauce.
- Responsive - Over two dozen cross-browser, responsive layouts and several responsive image styles are included to aid in site building and allow your site to work seamlessly on mobile devices.
- In-Place Page Building - Drag and drop customization of pages and nodes. Easily switch layouts, modify Views and Panels settings, change styles, and add generic widgets to display text, images, links, maps, submenus, video and spotlights across your site. No backend administration required!
- Admin Experience - Vastly improved site and content management experience, featuring a redesigned node add/edit page and a fully loaded, media enabled TinyMCE WYSIWYG.
- Apps Powered - Panopoly can be extended through various Panopoly Apps delivered by the Panopoly App server.
To make everything happen, Panopoly bundles a currated set of contributed modules and third party libraries with its own custom modules including Panopoly Admin, Panopoly Core, Panopoly Images, Panopoly Magic, Panopoly Pages, Panopoly Search, Panopoly Theme, Panopoly Users, Panopoly Widgets, and Panopoly WYSIWYG.
