While we had originally hoped to enter this phase earlier in the year, we didn't want to rush the product and release something that wasn't fully ready to be used. To us, a complete and polished system is the minimum viable product that you would expect from a CMS.
Fill out an application here to join the beta. We're screening applications to make sure we get a wide breadth of users and projects, and to make sure HiFi is the best fit for what you're working on. We'll begin rolling out beta accounts to selected users at the end of the week!
Beta accounts will be free to selected applicants. Beta users will have access to the standard HiFi setup, including unlimited access to the CMS, full use of the API and templates, and hosting of the site on HiFi's dedicated server (includes daily offsite backup, RAID, 24x7 uptime monitoring by pingdom, and more).
We really think that HiFi is a phenomenal product, representing a new type of CMS for developers. Here is just a short list of some of the features ready for you to take advantage of:
- Easy to use templating
- Powerful, open API
- Turn key process to set up accounts
- Fully integrated Bespin text editor
- Documentation displayed in backend sidebar
- TinyMCE WYSIWYG text editor and advanced publishing features
- Full fledged form creator and editor
- Tiered administrative access
- Embed.ly built into TinyMCE
- Intuitive backend design and navigation
We want to thank everyone for their patience while we've been building a system that we know will be a welcome addition to the web publishing space. Your support and dialogue has been extremely helpful in pushing this project to beta.
