FrontAid is a new CMS that stores content as JSON, in your own GitHub account.
FrontAid CMS is a decoupled and Git-based content management system. Content is stored in your own Git repository in the JSON text format. It works with all your current tools and you always own your data.
I like the idea of using Git as a backing store (Crafter CMS has been doing this for years), and I appreciate the angle of using the customer’s own storage account.
I’ve long-maintained that being “easy to fire” actually drives adoption. Vendors try to be sticky and hard to migrate from, and I think customers can sense this. If a vendor is easier to get rid of, a customer is more inclined to take the plunge and commit (ironically because there’s less commitment). Perhaps this is a naive and wishful ideal, but there it is.
