How it works
In Github mode, CMS.js uses the Github API to get the content of your repo and serve them as a full website.
In Server mode, CMS.js takes advantage of the Server's Directory Indexing feature. By allowing indexes, CMS.js sends an AJAX call to your specified folders and looks for Markdown or HTML files. After they are found, it takes care of everything else and delivers a full website.
Migration from Jekyll
Once CMS.js is installed and running, simply copy all of your posts from your Jekyll project's
_post folder to your designated CMS.js posts folder.
Copy all of your Markdown pages from your Jekyll projects root folder into your designated CMS.js pages folder.
