Perch spawns simple CMS for complex websites

Tiny content management system Perch, which we've covered before on Creative Bloq is about to receive a new edition, Perch Runway. Perch co-founder Rachel Andrew says the new product is "essentially a superset of Perch functionality," that contains Perch's templating, focus on structured data, and ease of use for content editors. The main difference is in how you develop with the product and the type of site it's aimed at.

"Perch is very much tied to physical pages, actual files on the server. You create a page, drop Perch tags into it, reload the page and start editing. This makes it really easy to retrofit CMS capability to a site and to make smaller sites editable," explains Andrew. "Runway will take an approach of routing URLs through a front controller, so there will be no need for these physical files. This is far better for larger, more dynamic sites."
