Overview The Cloud CMS Application Server offers an easy way for customers to assemble powerful, front-end custom APIs and web sites for Cloud CMS. It is completely free and runs on top of the popular Node.js technology stack. With Cloud CMS, customers have a choice of using any front-end presentation technology they wish. In many cases, customers already have a technology investment (such as C#, PHP, Java or Ruby) and thus a preference for continuing to build on that technology stack. H

Definitions for Date format

Our definitions are based on JSON schema and, as such, the default is to use strings for dates. The date controls in our forms engine let you customize the format string so that you can store ISO 8601 or other formats (perhaps simplified formats) as per your preference. The advantage here is simplicity with these controls and compatibility with JSON schema. The disadvantage is that MongoDB provides a lot of very powerful capabilities for range query and sorting that do not play as nicely with

How does Cloud CMS work with a CDN

There are a few places where this either occurs automatically if you're using our hosted service or can occur optionally if you're either running within Docker containers on your own or integrating to custom CDN endpoints.

First, the API itself can be fronted by a CDN that supports fallback lookup to an origin server.  In this case, we recommend Amazon CloudFront with short-lived TTLs on cache headers.  More specifically, you can use Amazon's API Gateway to get caching coverage across

Access Cloud CMS content anonymously or as a guest user

This question often comes up from folks who are building HTML applications that run in a browser. They'd like the browser to connect to Cloud CMS to download content and display it.  Usually this consists of things like images but also may consist of other types of content in Cloud CMS such as raw nodes, PDF files, video assets or more.

WCM and Caching

In Dust, there is the notion of a context which has a stack running underneath it. As you drill down into tags, a new context is pushed that can write new context variables as well as access previous variables from previous stack frames.

What we're doing in cloudcms-server is providing a dependency tracker so that each tag gets to declare the output (the HTML that was generated) and the set of dependencies that it depended on in order to generate the output. 

As an example, a qu

Tags Cloud CMS lets you manage your tag hierarchy and assign those tags to your content. Content that is tagged is automatically marked with the tag information (within the tags property) and will also maintain an a:has_tag association in the content graph that points back to the tag instance. Tags are first class citizens within Cloud CMS. They are content like everything else. Once content is tagged, you will see it reflected in the user interface as such. You will be able to navigate yo
