The authoring experience of HAX and the ability to make fast, static file backed websites rapidly. Get all the details you want on HAXTheWeb.org! HAXcms seeks to be the smallest possible back-end CMS to make HAX work and be able to build websites with it. Leveraging JSON Outline Schema, HAX is able to author multiple pages, which it then writes onto the file system. This way a slim server layer is just for basic authentication, knowing how to save files, and placing them in version control.

A simple method of adding new pages and managing the organization of those pages into a simple hierarchy (outline). Support for multiple mini web sites so that you can write a lot about different topics. HAXcms is only intended to be a micro-site generator and play nicely with the rest of the HAX ecosystem without needing a monster CMS in order to utilize it.

HAXiam (HAX, I am) is a SaaS configuration for HAXcms. It allows for the replication of HAXcms per user account for enterprise deployments. It's able to better interface with enterprise login systems while maintaining a clean copy of HAXcms.
HAXcms does not require HAXiam to operate but it is an alternate configuration that we support. Therefore if you see anything in the docs or under the hood referencing how to change settings when in that type of environment, you know why.
