A CMS or Content Management System is the backbone to most websites. It offers you, the owner and your team an easy way to manage your site and update it keeping the content fresh and up to date.
Most of the time you've heard of big names such as Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal but Nullstack is pleased to offer an alternative to these packages. Cole is a CMS system built to take on the big names developed by Nullstack Co-Director Peter Day. From the Start Cole needed to tick 3 boxes in order to be worthwile: Easy, Fast and Extensible.
First; Easy. Cole is a system so straightforward that if you know how to operate a word processor, You know how to Operate Cole. A lot of the time CMS systems such as Wordpress bombard you with controls, this is great in theory because more control is a good thing, but in reality it makes you not want to go near it for fear of breaking something. By removing / automating everything that can be, Cole is left looking sleek, modern and easy to understand with uniform layouts and Easy to navigate modules.
Next is speed. We ran a speed test of a fully laiden Wordpress installation vs a fully laiden Cole installation on the same server and the difference is astounding. The wordpress installation took up to 3 minutes and 15 seconds to load where as Cole took 2. We've achieved this feat of engineering by loading the core enviornment which is small anyway, and then loading the heavy stuff as and when it is needed resulting in a snappier user interface.
And finally; extensible. From the get-go we realised that Cole is only as good as the ability it has to integrate deeply into your website. Therefore we made an API to plug into Cole to make custom modules specifically for your site. In fact we've made this so robust we can get a basic module running in under 5 minutes.
But don't take our word for how good it is! We built the system but we'd love to give you a demo of it, Because when you see how easy Cole is to use, There's no going back. Contact us for a demo today.
