While Netlify CMS has enough functionality for many sites out of the box, some sites are going to need a setup geared specifically for their use case. This post is the first in a series designed to give a straightforward look at extending the CMS - starting with creating custom widgets.
Getting started is often the easy part, but staying consistent is where most aspiring bloggers fall short. At Netlify we sought out to help solve this with an open source solution, Netlify CMS.
A CMS that is open-source but fully-featured and production-ready, that’s as easy to customize as it is to use, and that developers and content editors can build a community around.
There was a modern web renaissance taking place and Smashing planned to be a part of it. After learning their site could be 6x faster if they took advantage of a global CDN, Smashing made the decision to choose the JAMstack and partnered with Netlify to get the job done.
In this episode of JAMstack Radio, Brian Douglas and Mathias Biilmann of Netlify are joined by Serverless’ Nik Graf, co-creator of DraftJS Plugins. On the agenda for this discussion is the emergence of new and better rich-text editors, and how React has changed the game for front-end developers.
