The technology behind Mass.gov
Content management system built on Drupal platform.
Mass.gov, launched in 2017, is built on a web content management framework called Drupal. This technology, written in PHP, supports everything from small blogs to sophisticated websites, such as Mass.gov.
Drupal emerged as an open source project in 2001, and as such has been contributed to by hundreds of thousands of people. Drupal supports user account management, system administration, page layout customization, and more. Security, privacy, web accessibility, and other upgrades are added regularly.
The Drupal platform is trusted by government, healthcare, educational, business, and other organizations to support web and application needs.
Massachusetts Digital Service's engineering team updates the Mass.gov platform with features and fixes weekly.
The design and accessibility elements that make up Mass.gov's look and feel are collected in what we call the Mayflower Design System, an open-source resource that Commonwealth government agencies are encouraged to use and adapt for their own websites
