Hexo + netlify CMS

This is a simple example of how to integrate netlify CMS with a hexo based site.

It's based on Brian Rinaldi's great Static Site Samples and meant as a simple example of how to hook netlify CMS up with a hexo based site.

Setting up

Make sure to install the netlify-git-api before you start.


git clone
cd hexo-cms-example
netlify-git-api users add
netlify-git-api serve

Open a separate terminal window and run:

npm install
hexo server


Visit localhost:4000 to browser the site.

Visit localhost:4000/admin to use the CMS.

To run against the GitHub API in production, edit the production backend settings for admin/index.ejs with the correct repository and branch.

Then run:

CMS_ENV=production hexo server
You can’t perform that action at this time.
