It is written in Pharo with seaside and uses MongoDB.

"Pharo is a powerful environment. Together with its web framework seaside and a lot of useful software parts like integration of JQuery, MongoDB and the pdf generator Artefact, it is possible to write software which is reliable and maintainable.
The very active and friendly pharo community makes it a pleasure to work with Pharo." (S. Manaa, shareholder of spesenfuchs)
