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

Content Modeling

Content Modeling You can put any kind of content into Cloud CMS. Things like desktop files (Word documents, PDF files, images, audio files and video) are no problem. However, the real power of Cloud CMS begins when you begin to model content type definitions and features to wrap around that content. A content type is a type of thing, such as an Article or a Press Release. You define content types in the same way that you might define a word in the dictionary. You give it a name and then yo

These are sometimes referred to as content instances. Instances are instantiations of a type. All content instances adhere to t

Recommended environment

This is a big subject and, as you know, there are many ways to set things up to be robust. That said, some practices are better than others. I can relate at least what we do and what we've seen customers do.

First, I'd recommend thinking of Cloud CMS as black box application that runs on top of MongoDB, Elastic Search (both of which can be thought of as databases) and a binary storage provider. Cloud CMS is a stateless application whose setup is actually quite simple. It doesn't mainta

Extensions

Extensions The Docker-based Cloud CMS UI provides additional extension patterns beyond the AMD-driven mechanism for user interface components and screens. Since Docker allows you to run on-premise, you can use these extension patterns to influence more foundational changes to the way the application works. Environment Variables When the Cloud CMS user interface starts up, it looks to environment variables to tell it whether there are any extensions available to be loaded. Extensions are s
