This has spurred a large movement of JS devs and pushed many new concepts like the Apostrophe CMS. It’s an open source content management system written solely in Node.js with a Mongo database structure.
The creators of Apostrophe wanted to make something easy to use and editable in-context. Check out the live Apostrophe demo to see it in action.
With admin access you have the ability to edit any text or images on the page without moving into a backend dashboard. Inline editing is a huge feature that works perfectly for non-technical clients who just want to perform basic maintenance of their website.
I’ll admit that anyone who’s unfamiliar with Node will have a very hard time learning the ropes. You really need some foundational knowledge of JS & Node before diving into Apostrophe. But if you can get through that phase you’ll be happy to learn Apostrophe has free how-tos and dev tutorials right on their website.
The core is very easy to install with full access available from the GitHub repo. Curious Node developers that want to push their boundaries may find Apostrophe refreshing and quite the exciting learning challenge.
