In this series of posts, I will be discussing these philosophies, as well as how NPR applied them and how we were able to do so much with so little (including our NPR API).

COPE [Create Once, Publish Everywhere - Ed.] is really a combination of several other closely related sub-philosophies, including:

  • Build content management systems (CMS), not web publishing tools (WPT)
  • Separate content from display
  • Ensure content modularity
  • Ensure content portability


Good stuff from NPR, and good reading for anyone building content tools online.
