Help Wanted: Open Source Hugo CMS



I don’t want to be spammy. I’ll be brief.
If the moderation thinks that this post should not be here, please let me know so I can remove it.

Some time ago I’ve built a Hugo CMS called Hokus CMS.
It is a desktop application that runs on Windows, Linux and Mac. It is open source, totally free.

The thing is, I can’t find people to contribute to it. I don’t know how many people are using it, if they are liking it or not. People are not getting involved.

I believe it can be a great tool for Hugo community, but I need help to achieve that.

Any tips to help to turn Hokus CMS into a great project would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.



Here’s some feedback on the website:

  • I don’t have time to watch videos, so from the front page I have no idea what the software is
  • The contact page is insecure for some reason

I think working on those two issues will present a more welcoming front door to future collaborators. :slight_smile:

Good luck with your CMS. I don’t use Electron, so that’s a pass for me.



Thank you!

One last question. Why don’t you use Electron apps?
You’ve never tried VSCode?

Thank you for your time!



You can look up reasons folks don’t use Electron. It is off-topic for the Hugo forums.

No. And by now we know we are different and it takes all kinds! :slight_smile:
