  • Show HN: Pages CMS – A CMS for GitHub

    Following one of the comments in this thread I reviewed two other products in this space - and - and it looks like the webpages are almost a direct copy of one another, one in dark mode and one in light mode.

    I'm a technical product marketer, and I find these type of landing page copying amusing to no end.

    Did you consider (previously Netlify CMS)? I'm surprised it never really caught on as it seems a good fit for most small Markdown based sites. Looks like Smashing Magazine was using it before they moved to Tina CMS (
  • The theory versus the practice of “static websites”
    13 projects | | 15 Jul 2023
    Products like [decap CMS]( try to bridge that gap, but I agree that this space needs to be further developed. In fact I think there needs to be a bunch more work to allow mere mortals to use version control and branch workflows in day to day work.
  • How to build a website without frameworks and tons of libraries

    I've thought of something similar! A git-based flow for a friend's static portfolio site, where he can make text edits and upload images, and the site builds that content with HTML templates.

    Not sure how the GitHub markdown editor would feel for the user. It might be really great, even for uploading images.

    I was imagining a static admin page, WYSIWYG, that makes git pushes on submit. These were the headless CMSs that seem to be able to accomplish that:

    And not git based, but similar idea:

    And this is what the admin edit page usually looks like:

    But was taking a bit of work to configure.

  • Looking for a statically deployed site-builder / CMS that stores content in GitHub
    3 projects | /r/selfhosted | 10 Jun 2023
    Since I made my post, I've also discovered Decap CMS. This looks fairly close to what I was looking for - it deploys as a static SPA alongside the site on a /admin route, allows login with Github (and several other platforms), and builds the site using a choice of static site generator like Gatsby/Hugo/Jekyll etc. The templates are relatively rigid by default though - page layouts are defined up front, and to add a page with a different layout you need to manually add some files to the repo. It seems like there's a way to work around this and add flexibility, but it needs a bit of custom React development. It seems like this might be worth the time investment for me though, since it's the closest thing I've found to what I need so far.
