Netlify CMS - A CMS for Static Site Generators

  •        186

A CMS for static site generators. Give non-technical users a simple way to edit and add content to any site built with a static site generator.Netlify CMS is a single-page app that you pull into the /admin part of your site.

It presents a clean UI for editing content stored in a Git repository. You setup a YAML config to describe the content model of your site, and typically tweak the main layout of the CMS a bit to fit your own site. When a user navigates to /admin they'll be prompted to login, and once authenticated they'll be able to create new content or edit existing content.

staticman - ๐Ÿ’ช Static sites with superpowers

  •    Javascript

Staticman is a Node.js application that receives user-generated content and uploads it as data files to a GitHub repository. In practice, this allows you to have dynamic content (e.g. blog post comments) as part of a fully static website, as long as your site automatically deploys on every push to GitHub, as seen on GitHub Pages, Netlify and others. It consists of a small web service that handles the POST requests from your forms, runs various forms of validation and manipulation defined by you and finally pushes them to your repository as data files. You can choose to enable moderation, which means files will be pushed to a separate branch and a pull request will be created for your approval, or disable it completely, meaning that files will be pushed to the main branch automatically.

cuttlebelle - The react static site generator that separates editing and code concerns

  •    HTML

All static site generators I have used restrict you to use one layout per page. Todays webdesign needs have outgrown this and we often find ourself either adding code into our content pages (markdown files, liquid templates) or content into our code. That makes updating and maintaining a page hard, especially for a non-technical content author. I needed a generator that can separate content from code as cleanly as possible while still staying a static site generator and as dynamic as possible.

coisas - a client-side CMS for editing GitHub Markdown (and other) files.

  •    Javascript

coisas is a headless CMS specifically designed to let you edit files hosted in a GitHub repository. It is similar to Netlify CMS and Prose. Unlike existing alternatives, coisas doesn't try to be a multipurpose CMS. It still lets you edit, create, upload, and browse files, but doesn't try to look like a fancy CMS (custom schema, objects and all that mess). It also isn't tailored to Jekyll websites, which means that it won't insert Jekyll specific code or expect your repository to have a Jekyll-specific file structure. To use coisas, go to https://coisas.alhur.es/ or embed it in your site, for example, in an /admin/ section (more detailed instructions on how to do this may come - for the meantime please copy the hosted version file structure).

hugo-lambda - Use AWS Lambda to run the Hugo static site generator

  •    CSS

A wrapper around the hugo static site generator to have it run in AWS Lambda whenever new (markdown or other) content is uploaded. See a tutorial here. So why go to all this trouble? Because running a CMS like Wordpress, Drupal, and others gets expensive for infrequently edited sites. You pay 24/7 to run all the code to let you edit your site, when that code only runs when you update your blog. Static site generators are cheaper to run (just toss the files somewhere) but if you're not at the computer you normally use to edit and publish content, you may not have all your tools.
