From zero to productive in seconds

Supercharge your workflow with LexasCLI's generators and built-in development server. Create more value for your clients and spend less time writing boilerplate code.

    slug: true
      - { name: "name", type: "text", title: "Name" }
      - { name: "biography", type: "html", title: "Biography" }

      - { name: "heading", type: "text", title: "Heading" }
      - { name: "copy", type: "html", title: "Main Copy" }
      - { name: "team_members", type: "collection", title: "Team Members", definition: "team_member" }

Structure your content, your way

Your CMS should fit around your content, not the other way around. LexasCMS comes with no predefined content structure, allowing you to define how you would like the content to be structured.

{% extends "base.twig" %}

{% block pageBody %}
  <div id="about">

    <h1>{{ page.heading.html() }}</h1>
    {{ page.copy.html()|raw }}

    <div id="team-members">
      <h2>Team Members</h2>

      {% for teamMember in page.team_members %}
        <h3>{{ }}</h3>
        {{ teamMember.biography.html()|raw }}
      {% endfor %}

{% endblock %}

Bring your own design

Having complete control of your users experience is incredibly important. LexasCMS makes no assumptions about your design and provides you with full control of your websites HTML/CSS and user journey.
