TinaCMS

Open source editing tool-kit for Gatsby and Next.js sites

Tina is an open-source, editing toolkit for React-based sites — Gatsby & Next.js.
Tina is not a CMS, in the traditional sense. Instead, it gives your site real-time editing abilities. Less of a WordPress experience and more like a Squarespace experience.

Hi folks 👋 We’re really excited to share TinaCMS with you all. The editing experience of traditional CMSs hasn’t changed much in the last decade or two and we feel that developers need something better to give their clients and teams. We feel we have something truly remarkable for you :) TinaCMS allows you to bake-in editing functionality into your Gatsby and Next.js sites for a live editing experience that's more similar to Squarespace than WordPress. We've open-sourced Tina so developers can use it without restrictions for commercial and personal projects. If you want to get involved with the project and I urge you to get involved with the community. https://tinacms.org/community/ Let us know what you think! ...Bonus points if you can guess what TinaCMS stands for (tip: it’s a “recursive acronym”).

I can't wait to use this! I'm working on a new tutorial right now for designing and building a Gatsby site. This would be an awesome feature to include. Also, this should be top 3 on PH.

@suresh_kumar_g But did you see my challenge: "...Bonus points if you can guess what TinaCMS stands for (tip: it’s a “recursive acronym”)."

Congrats on the launch! Is it possible to combine Tina with another CMS? For example, I want to use Tina to give my authenticated users the ability to edit pages I've created for them, then use another traditional CMS like Ghost to manage my marketing site. Interested in your thoughts @scottgallant

@tela Yes that should work as long as you're using files to store that content. Currently, Tina supports content that's stored in a Git repo (Markdown files, JSON files, etc) but in the future Tina will be able to read/write to other data sources.

Nice! @scottgallant knowing you've worked on another solid CMS product (Forestry), I'm curious as to what the thinking behind launching this new one was?

Hey @the_fln, congrats on the launch of Snipcart 3.0 yesterday! https://www.producthunt.com/post... We know that the CMS editing experience can be so much better and we're laying the foundation for the future with Tina. You can read more about our reasoning here: https://forestry.io/blog/announc...
