5 Areas of Focus for Crafter CMS in 2019

It’s almost 2019 and we couldn’t be more excited with what’s in store for Crafter CMS in the coming months. What’s on the roadmap? Here is a quick summary of five main areas of focus that we know will help Crafter to remain the best CMS platform for innovative organizations.

CMS for SPAs Tutorial: Using React and Node JS with Crafter CMS

The most traditional, full-featured CMS platforms are not designed to handle headless content and most headless CMS platforms aren’t full-featured and have only basic authoring support. Crafter CMS is both full-featured and fully supports headless CMS capabilities. That’s pretty unique. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a content-rich, ReactJS-based Single Page Application (SPA) with in-context editing and other full-featured authoring capabilities.

Headless CMS: Enable In-Context Preview and Editing in an External Application

Do you have an existing application that has content in it that you want to manage but you don’t want to completely rebuild in a CMS? This use case is more common than you can imagine. Developers start building an application only much later to find it would benefit from CMS authoring capabilities like in-context editing and preview. What’s the solution? Rebuild the application? No. Crafter CMS is a headless CMS that’s front-end agnostic. It can plug into any application. Let’s look at a very simple example. Just recently I posted a blog that used Node JS an external application that called Crafter CMS headless CMS capabilities for content via APIs.

Introducing Crafter CMS Javascript SDK

In this blog, we will focus on the language-specific bindings for Javascript, the Crafter CMS Javascript SDK. These bindings can be used in any client side (e.g. a browser-based application) or server-side (e.g. Node.js) applications.

Integrating Crafter CMS with BitBucket for Better DevOps

Content authoring and software development are both a major part of producing today’s digital experiences. Unfortunately, development support is not something traditional CMS platforms handle very well at scale. Crafter CMS, a 100% open source CMS platform that includes a Git-based repository designed to handle not only authoring but also DevOps seamlessly. We call this seamless collaboration between devops and authors DevContentOps.

Why Developers Should Care About CMS

As developers, we’ve got a strong handle on how to manage and deploy our code assets. Yet every one of us, at some point in our application build has said, “What about this text? What about these images? Where do these belong?” That’s pretty unive

Never Use a Traditional CMS to Back Your Applications!

Almost every application today, regardless of the delivery technology and channel (web, mobile, kiosk, etc) has content in it. Smart developers quickly realize that managing the strings and the other content should be done outside the application ra
