KeystoneJS

Build Status

About Keystone

KeystoneJS is a powerful Node.js content management system and web app framework built on the Express web framework and Mongoose ODM. Keystone makes it easy to create sophisticated web sites and apps, and comes with a beautiful auto-generated Admin UI.

Documentation

For Keystone v4 documentation and guides, see keystonejs.com.

For Keystone v0.3 documentation, see v3.keystonejs.com.

Keystone 4.0 Release Candidate (RC)

We've been working on a major update to KeystoneJS. Keystone 4 is a complete rebuild of Keystone's Admin UI and internal architecture.

Improvements include:

  • The Admin UI has been re-written as a single page app using React.js, Redux, and Elemental UI
  • An updated API for Lists and Fields
  • Better support for using Keystone without Express, or with your own express instance
  • Core functionality has been refactored and we're breaking Keystone up into separate npm packages
  • Startup time has been significantly reduced
  • LocalFile, S3File, and AzureFile have been replaced by a new generic keystone.Storage engine and File field
  • We have much higher unit and end-to-end test coverage

Please try out Keystone 4 and let us know what you think:

npm install --save keystone

We'll be publishing a summary of the new features, changes, and improvements as we get closer to the final release. In the meantime, see the v0.3 -> v4.0 Upgrade Guide for information on what's changed.

Also check out our demo site, which has been updated to the new version!

Getting Started

This section provides a short intro to Keystone. Check out the Getting Started Guide in the Keystone documentation for a more comprehensive introduction.

Installation

The easiest way to get started with Keystone is to use the Yeoman generator:

$ npm install -g generator-keystone
$ yo keystone

Answer the questions, and the generator will create a new project based on the options you select, and install the required packages from npm.

Alternatively, to include Keystone in an existing project or start from scratch (without Yeoman), specify keystone: "4.0.0-rc.1" in the dependencies array of your package.json file, and run npm install from your terminal.

Then read through the Documentation and the Example Projects to understand how to use it.

Configuration

Config variables can be passed in an object to the keystone.init method, or can be set any time before keystone.start is called using keystone.set(key, value). This allows for a more flexible order of execution. For example, if you refer to Lists in your routes you can set the routes after configuring your Lists.

See the KeystoneJS configuration documentation for details and examples of the available options.

Database field types

Keystone builds on the basic data types provided by MongoDB and allows you to easily add rich, functional fields to your application's models.

You get helper methods on your models for dealing with each field type easily (such as formatting a date or number, resizing an image, getting an array of the available options for a select field, or using Google's Places API to improve addresses) as well as a beautiful, responsive admin UI to edit your data with.

See the KeystoneJS database documentation for details and examples of the various field types, as well as how to set up and use database models in your application.

Running KeystoneJS in Production

When you deploy your KeystoneJS app to production, be sure to set your ENV environment variable to production.

You can do this by setting NODE_ENV=production in your .env file, which gets handled by dotenv.

Setting your environment enables certain features (including template caching, simpler error reporting, and HTML minification) that are important in production but annoying in development.
