Why choose a Git-based CMS

We believe in the power of Git. A Git-based CMS stays in sync with your Git repository and provides an intuitive GUI for managing the content in these files without needing any Git or web development knowledge. ​​​​​​

With a Git-based CMS, you own your content — it’s in your repository, and you have the complete history of all the changes. With a superior version control system compared to traditional CMS platforms,  there's no need for backups, exports, or concern for data lock-in. 

A Git-based CMS centralizes all your website files, and understands how the content fits into your website. Editors don’t need to use their imagination about where content will live on the page: they can edit directly on the website.
