At CloudCannon, we’re always looking for ways to offload content management from developers and empower editors to make changes themselves. Enabling editors to build their own pages with complex elements such as slideshows, testimonials and call to actions is something we’ve wanted to support but haven’t had a good solution for.
In the past we’ve talked about our mission of bringing publishing workflows to non-technical editors. This post is an update on some interesting new CloudCannon features bringing us closer to fully realising our vision.
This week Chrome is releasing an update that will show “Not Secure” on any site that uses HTTP. This is part of an ongoing strategy to create a more secure web. To assist with this change, we have added free automatic SSL certificates on all CloudCannon connected domains. This draws our SSL private beta to a close making it available for all CloudCannon users.
GitHub Pages is a reliable, performant Jekyll hosting provider which has recently added support for SSL. It’s a great hosting platform but has a major limitation, you can’t use custom Jekyll plugins. Today we’re looking at how CloudCannon can help resolve this limitation.
Jekyll is often pigeon-holed as a tool for developers to write their blog. This is just one of the many great uses of Jekyll. We’re always interested in exploring unconventional use cases which push the boundaries in Jekyll. Today we’re releasing three MIT licensed templates which do exactly that.
