A simpler Hippo CMS

XIN Mods turn Hippo into a simpler experience.

Bloomreach CMS (formerly known as Hippo) is a great CMS that offers solutions for many use cases medium to large businesses might encounter.

But sometimes, you just want a stable CMS that is a simple document container.

Sometimes, you don't want to have to write your frontend in the Java tech stack.

Sometimes, you have an existing application that just needs to be a bit more dynamic.

Using services like Contentful is an option, but it introduces an architectural dependency on a third-party vendor over which you have no control. If that is a problem, or if using Open Source technologies is an important part of your platform goals, consider Hippo CMS again, but slap on the XIN Mods.

XIN Mods:

  • reduce the complexity of the Hippo base CMS by taking away functionality you're unlikely to need;
  • increase flexibility of choice by exposing a new set of document endpoints that any frontend technology can talk to;
  • values content above all; you can import and export content easily using the Package Manager making the actual Hippo CMS less important;;
