headlesscms.org

headlesscms.org, a leaderboard of top open-source static site content management systems.

Contributing

Missing a headless CMS here? Just fork the repo and add yours as a <name>.md in the content/projects folder.

Make sure to follow the following rules:

  • Truly headless: This means your CMS must interact with content and data, and cannot be responsible for building the site.
  • JAMstack: Your CMS has to work with the JAMstack methodology: JavaScript, API's and Markup.
  • Stick to the format: Fill out all the same fields as the other CMS's in content/projects.
  • Short description: Keep all the details for the body text, keep the description for the overview page short and sweet.

Usage

Be sure that you have the latest node and npm installed, then clone this repository and run:

npm install
npm start

In order to successfully retrieve Twitter followers and GitHub stars, you will need authentication keys for both services.

For GitHub, all you'll need is a personal access token. This can be generated at https://github.com/settings/tokens. For Twitter, you need to create an application at https://apps.twitter.com to get the necessary tokens. When deploying, you must set the environment variables per the example below. If you are developing locally, you can set these in a .env file at the root of the repo.

HEADLESS_CMS_GITHUB_TOKEN=examplekey123abc
HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY=examplekey231abc
HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET=examplekey321abc
HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_KEY=examplekey231abc
HEADLESS_CMS_TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET=examplekey321abc

GitHub and Twitter data is cached in the .tmp directory, and online in a Gist. If neither has data newer than 24 hours old, fresh data is fetched from GitHub and Twitter. Fetching caching occur automatically during the build.

Then visit http://localhost:3000/ - React Static will automatically reload when changes occur.

To test a production build locally, do:

npm run stage
npm run serve

To run a production build for deployment:

npm run build
