Co-creator here. I was building a website for someone last summer and I REALLY didn't want to use WordPress, so my friend and I built forestry.io. Some highlights: • Supports all Jekyll plugins • Integrates with GitHub & Bitbucket (commits back to your repo) • Zero configuration for you project • Hosting not provided (deploy to S3, Github Pages, FTP) • Use Markdown or WYSIWYG I'd love to know what you think if the concept. Get in touch at scott@forestry.io if you have any specific needs. Thanks!

@scottgallant @forestry Immediate feedback : Allowing import from github public url should be a quick way to start with. I found that missing.
@acpmasquerade @forestry Great feedback! We're going to look into it.

Looks great but seems very similar to siteleaf.com are there any features that make it a more compelling option than site leaf?
Really nice, especially if you're already using Jekyll or Hugo!
I've been waiting for a Jekyll-based CMS for a long time now. I built my company's website using Jekyll years ago, but moved to WordPress because of the CMS capabilities. I may just end up back with Jekyll again soon and begin pimping out Forestry to my clients. Fantastic job, gentlemen!
