How does it work?

A designer can login and create one or more ‘instances’ (client websites). Each instance holds a webdesign. Just upload the html template (parts), css file(s) and / or javascript to the specific instance. Peatcms will combine and compress these to be used serving the content.

Elements

Peatcms works with ‘elements’. These are individual entities residing in the cms. Currently supported elements are Page, Image and File (meaning downloadable file). The designer creates templates for these elements. With the cms you(r client) creates one or more pages, images and files and links them together using drag and drop.

Staging / testing

You can use subdomains to stage websites using a domain that you control. For the templates there is also a sandbox, so you can see the changes you made before publishing.

Client login

A designer can create one or more client logins for each website. The client can login on their own website and manage the content. Everything is updated on the fly.

Template handling and client login are under development.

Template engine

Backend / cms
