Instant Update 4
Although it’s been in my head and my keyboard for a while, I am “officially” starting to work on brand new Instant Update CMS from 5th of July. Version 4, which is being written from scratch, is based on CodeIgniter and Datamapper ORM. Although it is (or at least will be) completely rewritten, we will keep current philosophy of being template-less CMS system! Sort of, as in new version you will actually use your HTML files as templates!
What’s new in version 4:
- Inline editing – edit directly on page
- Global contents – contents which span across multiple pages
- Source sharing – two or more pages can be based on same HTML source file
- Easy integration – no files to modify, no codes to add
- Image manipulation – advanced image manipulation utility
- Revision history for all contents
These are just few of many improvements we are going to make in new IU. These are sort of already implemented.
We plan to release it with minimum functionality and to build on top of that when we hear back suggestions from our users. I’m thrilled to work on this!
