Learn how to set up your website on the CloudCannon MkDocs CMS.

Welcome to the CloudCannon MkDocs starter guide! If you want to get your MkDocs site built, editable, and live on CloudCannon, you are in the right place.

Before we start, this guide assumes you already have a MkDocs site uploaded to a Git repository. Although you can upload files directly from your hard drive, we highly recommend using a Git repository.

Don’t have a MkDocs site yet? No worries! You can create one with our Jamstack tutorials for your favorite SSGs.

With Gatsby, you can use CloudCannon’s Source Editor out-of-the-box. We’ll teach you how to configure our other editing interfaces — the Content, and Data Editors — for the best editing experience.

In this guide we’ll cover how to build your first site, import snippets to use Python Markdown extensions, and configure MkDocs for the best CloudCannon experience.
