Tina is an open-source toolkit for building content management directly into your website.
- Tina is a new and fast moving project. Although API stability and easy developer experience is important to the core team, they cannot be guaranteed while the project is pre-1.0.
- Although Tina supports many use cases not all of them have helper packages or comprehensive guides. If you’re looking to use Tina in a novel way you will have to do a lot of manual setup.
Recommended: use the lts/dubnium version of node (v 10.20.1)
To get started:
git clone [email protected]:tinacms/tinacms.git cd tinacms npm install npm run build # Start Gatsby demo cd packages/demo-gatsby npm run start
WARNING: Do not run
npm install from inside the
TinaCMS uses Lerna to manage dependencies when developing locally. This allows the various packages to reference each other via symlinks. Running
npm install from within a package replaces the symlinks with references to the packages in the npm registry.
|npm run bootstrap||Install dependencies and link local packages.|
|npm run build||Build all packages.|
|npm run test||Run tests for all packages.|
|lerna run build --scope <package>||Build only <package>.|
Testing With External Projects
Linking apps to a monorepo can be tricky. Tools like
npm link are buggy and introduce inconsistencies with module resolution. If multiple modules rely on the same package you can easily end up with multiple instances of that package, this is problematic for packages like
react which expect only one instance.
@tinacms/webpack-helpers provides tools and instructions for testing local TinaCMS changes on external websites.
TinaCMS packages are updated every Monday.
