BackBee CMS Standard Edition
BackBee CMS is an open-source content management system. Because it incorporates HTML5 programming to an unprecedented extent, its usability and design flexibility surpasses all other content management systems that we know of.
All changes in content – adding, deleting or changing text, images or new page elements – can be made directly on the page. Just click and type, or drag and drop. No back office. No shuttling back and forth between the back end and a “preview” page that often fails to match the final page display.
BackBee CMS offers what we like to call WYSIWYRG, What You See Is What You Really Get. And because it automatically saves different page versions, there’s no fear of losing changes along the way. If only everything in life could be this easy and secure.
- Powerful and easy to use content system
- Multiple websites
- Custom themes
- Custom pages
- Advanced block system
- Users/Groups management
If you want to generate some fake categories and articles, you can use this command:
$ ./backbee fake:data:generate --article-limit 20 --category-limit 5
Ask for help
Pull requests are welcome.
Please take a look to our CONTRIBUTING.md file
First of all, thank you for contributing, you are awesome!
Here are a few rules to follow in order to ease code reviews, and discussions before maintainers accept and merge your work.
- You MUST run the test suite.
- You MUST write (or update) unit tests.
- You SHOULD write documentation.
One may ask you to squash your commits too. This is used to "clean" your Pull Request before merging it (we don't want commits such as
fix 3, etc.).
Also, while creating your Pull Request on GitHub, you MUST write a description which gives the context and/or explains why you are creating it.
When you create a Pull Request ("PR"), if it's component related you can prefix it by the component name. You can also use plus or minus to describe if you globally add or remove something, and reference it to an issue.
For instance, this is a PR valid label:
[Rest] #42 + Updated & completed PageController tests.
When you want to take an issue, create your PR prefixed by a [WIP]("Work in progress") and add a "in progress" label. This way, we know you are working on it and we can give you some advices if needed.
When you have finished your PR, you can update the PR label to replace [WIP] by [RFR]("Ready for review") prefix.
Consider your PR finished if:
- You have written a test with a new feature;
- All tests pass;
- The build is all green;
- You (may) have introduced a little documentation;
- Your PR respects project formatting rules (see above);
Sync a fork
Github dev team has already described the right way to do.
$ git fetch upstream $ git checkout master $ git merge upstream/master
We use php-formatter to manage your file headers and the way the use statements should be added to the classes.
Before submit your Pull Request, don't forget to apply this commands:
~$ php-formatter formatter:header:fix . ~$ php-formatter formatter:use:sort .
You need to install php-formatter before.
Deciders & mergers
BackBee CMS have a core team who have rights on repositories.
- Only mergers can merge your work on master branch;
- If one of the deciders gives a
:-1:on your suggestion, the pull request won't be merged until he changes his mind;
Current mergers are @eric-chau and @crouillon, current deciders are @ndufreche and @fkroockmann, @hbaptiste, @mickaelandrieu.
All the core team is here to help you if you want to improve BackBee CMS, we love contribution :)
