Content Management Process: Frontend or Backend First?
Back to changelog
A very interesting article was published to one of my favorite web dev blogs today. Where Content Management Systems Fit Into the Process goes into a discussion which I think is seldom in the limelight in the development community, what is the best process in connecting your site to a CMS? The author Geoff Graham presents three options in building a dynamic, CMS-powered website:
Option 1: The CMS Comes First Method
Option 2: The All-At-Once Method
Option 3: The CMS Comes Last Method
Previously, when building sites using other CMS platforms I would prefer to use the "CMS Comes Last Method" because I would be able to work out a lot of bugs, change my mind and add new features in the static HTML/CSS build phase before pouring in the more time-consuming programming / CMS phase.
But with Cosmic I can use any one of these methods and feel confident that I can easily make edits, change my mind and add new features to a CMS-powered website. There's power and reassurance in flexibility and Cosmic offers the most flexible way to add content to your website.
