HashBrown CMS

A free and open-source headless CMS built with Node.js and MongoDB

The centralised approach

Ever wonder why you have to run a completely separate CMS for every single project? We did too, and that's why HashBrown exists today. This is the new central brain for your extended project structure.

Installing and running HashBrown

First make sure you have these dependencies met:

  • node.js >= v6
  • mongodb >= v3.2

Then checkout and run HashBrown:

git clone https://github.com/HashBrownCMS/hashbrown-cms.git -b stable --single-branch --recursive
cd ./hashbrown-cms
npm install --production
node hashbrown.js

Updating HashBrown

To update the core HashBrown version and all of its dependencies:

cd /to/your/hashbrown/dir
git pull
git submodule update --recursive --init
npm install --production
