LocomotiveCMS is designed to save your time and help you focus on what matters: front-end technology, standard development process and no-learning time for your client.
Build your website locally. Deploy it instantly.
Like to keep using your favorite IDE and development tricks? With LocomotiveCMS you work locally just like any web project. You deploy your site whenever you want and can keep track of your code in your SCM.
Super friendly content editing interface
Your client should be able to edit the content without any training or any skills.
The author interface provides non-technical, simple and meaningful options, and most of the content can be edited directly inline. Just switch to editing mode.
Don't let your client mess up with your layout
… and don’t mess up with the content. Designers can change design, authors can change content. You can keep your development methods, like source code tracking and local development. Don’t be afraid to modify the layout, it won’t affect the content.
Open Source with professional support
The community helps us build a secured and well-tested CMS. Extend the code to fit your needs, and rely on the community to get help on our forum. And if you need more help, we offer professional support.
After much testing we eventually settled on the powerful Locomotive system, an open source CMS with a knack for connecting things together and a nice back-end interface to manage both the content and its complex network of relationships.
Setting up a new Rails app, development and production environments, git repositories etc. is just too much work and maintenance for small projects. Thanks to LocomotiveCMS, I no longer have to do all of that. We can now take on new projects we used to turn down before.

LocomotiveCMS is awesome if you try to publish structured content and if you are not looking for just another WYSIWYG Editor. The way you can expand the CMS, the direct contact to other contributors and the founder of LocomotiveCMS and the chance to influence and discuss the future of the product makes it outstanding besides all the other opportunities.
