Crafter: A Git-Backed CMS

This was sent in Issue #8 of Squirrel Notes on May 11, 2018.

I had a demo of Crafter CMS. I’d known about the system as a WCM front-end to Alfresco, the enterprise content management system, and I had last seen a demo of it in this context. Since then, Crafter has abstracted their repository and it now runs on pure Git, the source code management system.

Honestly, the idea struck me as a bit gimmicky, but Russ ran us through some of the use cases involving complicated versioning scenarios; disconnected content repositories; and a consolidated management architecture behind content, code, and configuration.

By the end, I might have become a believer. It’s certainly worth looking at.
