Moving From WordPress to Forestry

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Reactive Components for Modern Web Interfaces

    I absolutely love Vue and basically use NuxtJS, which is a static site generator built with Vue, wherever I can. All I had to do was find a CMS that would allow me to use this technology as the base for my project.
  2. Syntatically Awesome Style Sheets

    In my case, I opted to use NuxtJS with its content module and SCSS because I'm comfortable with both.
  3. Rank Math WordPress SEO plugin will help you rank higher in search engines. DOWNLOAD for FREE this plugin today to optimize your WordPress website for higher rankings and more traffic.

    As time went on though, I found myself spending a lot more time maintaining plugins, constantly tweaking RankMath settings to maximize SEO, adjusting and optimizing images...
  4. prismic.io is a web software you can use to manage content in any kind of website or app. API-driven.

    I can't say I'd recommend Forestry for every project though. Since it's a Git-based CMS, using it on a client project might cause some concerns since their content would have to be on a Git provider (although it could be a private repository). I'd probably opt to use an API-based CMS like Prismic or Contentful instead in that case.
  5. Nuxt.js presets all the configuration needed to make your development of a Vue.js application enjoyable. It's a perfect static site generator.

    I absolutely love Vue and basically use NuxtJS, which is a static site generator built with Vue, wherever I can. All I had to do was find a CMS that would allow me to use this technology as the base for my project.
  6. Faster web pages and apps.

    I source, resize, and run my image through ImageOptim.
  7. A simple CMS for Jekyll and Hugo sites.

    Forestry.io is a Git-based headless CMS that allows you to manage markdown content with a truly beautiful editing experience. They offer a very generous free plan that allows you to run up to three sites and each site can have three different editors. Not only that but they have really nailed making getting started as easy as possible (after creating an account):.
