Episode 174 of Thinking Elixir. The Elixir community has a new OpenSource CMS thanks to DockYard and Leandro Pereira! We talk with Leandro to better understand what the Beacon project is and what it can do. It’s built using Phoenix LiveView and can be deployed standalone or as part of an existing Elixir Phoenix application. The Admin features include the ability for non-developers to edit content and immediately deploy changes without re-deploying the app. We talk about how BeaconCMS is positioned against Wordpress and static sites and where the greatest benefits are. A feature in development is the HEEx template editor which promises to be a very exciting tool for non-developers. Learn along with us!
