This documentation introduces key concepts in CrafterCMS |version|, presents the authoring and development environment, and provides operational and administrative considerations and procedures as well as a comprehensive reference section.

What is CrafterCMS

CrafterCMS is a modern content management platform for building digital experience applications including:

  • HTML5 websites
  • e-commerce front-ends
  • OTT video experiences on AWS Elemental Media Services
  • AR/VR applications using A-Frame

CrafterCMS is a dynamic CMS based on Git and supports DevContentOps processes for code and content. It is also a hybrid-headless, API-first (GraphQL, REST, in-process) CMS, and that allows developers to use their favorite UI frameworks and tools.
