Pumping Raw Energy Into Previously Static Content

In lower CAPS if you please, raw engineering has released its contentstack.io mobile-first Content Management System to turn a previously static website or app into something more engaging in terms of content.

Built on top of raw's built.io, contentstack.io comes with mobile enablement built in, rather than bolted on. This means the same content published to a website can be directly consumed and displayed by a mobile app.

"Our own web developers and our customers' web developers like contentstack.io, because it cleanly separates code from content. It serves up this content in a mobile-friendly format (JSON) so it can be directly consumed by mobile applications and things like responsive design also become a lot faster to implement," Nishant Patel, CTO of raw engineering told Dr. Dobb's.

"It's easy to build one-click integrations for business users with third-party services like Marketo, Google Analytics. By enabling business users to take care of content updates themselves, developers are freed up to create value for the organization without getting pulled in every time a spelling mistake on a website needs to get fixed."

contentstack.io provides access controls and role management so that only authorized users can change content and any updates adhere to company policies and follow approved templates, making it ideal and fit for the enterprise.

Up until now, most businesses had to choose between implementing a complex, costly, bloated CMS or settling for an overly simplistic, blogging CMS that was never meant to serve the enterprise. contentstack.io claims to provide a new approach to content management: a no-nonsense mobile-first alternative specifically for enterprises.
