Outstatic CMS is a content management system built with Next.js. It uses Markdown files which are stored at GitHub. Outstatic CMS supports custom collections and custom fields, making it a flexible option for managing content. However, it does not have theming options, Sitemap or SEO options.
It allows you to create, edit and save content that is automatically committed to your repository and deployed to your live website.
Setting up Outstatic CMS takes only a few seconds, but it requires Vercel and Github accounts. Once set up, Outstatic CMS provides a WYSIWYG editor, enabling users to upload images for posts. However, it does have a few drawbacks, such as leakage of design tables.
Overall, Outstatic CMS is a simple and efficient CMS for managing content, with its easy setup and customizable options.
All your Outstatic documents and collections are saved as Markdown files in your GitHub repository. In other words, all saved content creates a commit.
