Netlify CMS - A CMS for Static Site Generators

  •        82

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.
