What is the Website Editor?
Merlin's Website Editor, or Editor as we'll refer to it from on on, is a Git-backed CMS (content management system) for websites and web products built using static site generators. Merlin's Website Editor bridges the gap between complex code and our client's content editors.
Editing of every page on your site is straight forward and simple
Static sites don’t require a complicated server setup to allow for the dynamic rendering of pages. This means your sites download faster for visitors, can handle insane volumes of traffic, and have many fewer touchpoints that are vulnerable to hacking.
Unlike traditional content management systems, your codebase is your website. That means developers can work on changes to the website locally, and then push to Git and automatically have them deployed to production.
Gone are the days of developers and editors having completely separate workflows. Developers and editors now work in sync with Git, providing unparalleled ability to deliver quickly and easily.
