Stop saving raw json/html/markdown/whatever to your database!


A small library to deal with content, for shops who don’t want a full blown CMS. By leveraging frontmatter, node, and elasticsearch, you can get a top notch api that decouples your data store, furtureproofs your content decisions, and keeps management happy. Bonus - a free admin UI for all your content with almost zero work.

    Elaborate, please? What do you store to the database finally?

    frontmatter(yaml/whatever) + content, really that simple. turns out this ‘one weird trick’ + a nice api has huge gains. Using it inside myntra for managing daily layout changes, front end projects that go through multiple ‘tech’ iterations before hitting prod, little style tips that show up on our seach pages etc. Demo-ing it at bangalorejs tomorrow, if you’d like to come see.
