Is it possible to use Netlify CMS without a static site generator?

Hi, is it possible to use Netlify CMS without a static site generator?

I’m talking pure handcoded HTML, CSS and JS websites.

In the docs there is only instructions for how to install if you are using specific static site generators, and i use none.

Hi @petter, thanks for posting.
There is a similar post here that discusses how you can integrate Netlify CMS without using a static site generator.

@erez’s answer is great to help you get started.

Kindly try it out and let me know the outcome if it works or not.
Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Be aware that Netlify CMS cannot edit html files directly. If you’re planning on doing just that, don’t waste your time and look for a different solution :slight_smile:
