History

https://www.unsungnovelty.org at the beginning used Cocoah-Enhanced as it’s theme. Brahma was born out of necessity to accomodate my needs for performance and functionalities. So far there has been 4 major iterations for Brahma.

Is Brahma open source?

No. This is to reduce the scope of the features and to make it easy to maintain - for now. As I get more time, I might make it open source.
