A better way to build

Developers are choosing to build static sites with Jekyll and Hugo. Forestry is the CMS that powers these sites at scale. A fundamentally better way to build, here's why:

  • Security

    More secure

    Simpler setup means fewer attack points.

  • Code

    Faster Coding

    With tools like Jekyll and Hugo, coding and maintenace are improved by 10x.

  • Server

    Simple to host

    No LAMP stack required. Simple hosting with Amazon S3, GitHub Pages, Fastly, etc.

  • Headaches

    Less headaches

    No more hacked sites, outdated plugins or WordPress updates. Build it and forget it.

How Forestry works

1

Import site

Connect to a repo or upload a zip of your Jekyll/Hugo project

2

Build CMS

Forestry.io will parse your project and automatically build a CMS

3

Deploy

Tell Forestry where to publish changes (Git repo, Amazon S3, FTP, etc)

Git Workflow

Push code and Forestry will update your CMS. When editors save changes in Forestry, all updates get committed back to your repo. Everything under version control.

Manage Users

Give editors access. Manage roles and permissions.

Host anywhere

Forestry is host-agnostic. Every time someone updates content, Forestry will compile your site and deploy it to your host (S3, GitHub Pages, FTP, etc).
