  • Maven Archetype

    The Hippo CMS Maven archetype and setup application will aid in creating and scaffolding your own Hippo CMS-based project by adding and configuring out-of-the-box features from our plugin library.

  • Console & Tools

    Tools include automatic model generation from your content types and RESTful service configuration. Once up and running the Console application gives full access to the content repository, including all system configuration.

  • Web Files

    Web Files enable a fast development cycle for your Freemarker templates and static resources like Javascript and CSS files without the need for any third-party hot deployment agent.

  • Hierarchical Model-View-Controller

    Content and presentation are cleanly separated and the Hippo CMS delivery tier uses the Hierarchical Model-View-Controller architectural pattern, where auto-generated models and out-of-the-box controllers are extensible and replaceable, and views can be modified on-the-fly.

  • Hippo Event Bus

    The Hippo CMS workflow can be hooked into through the Hippo Event Bus which uses the whiteboard pattern for reliable listener registration and guaranteed event delivery.

  • Headless CMS

    Built-in support for the REST architectural style allows integration across your enterprise architecture and the web using simple scalable web services.
