Use forestry CMS
Do you prefer managing your site using a CMS? Or would you like to make it easier for someone (a non-techie, perhaps) in your team to make edits easily? If interested, follow along. Else, skip to the next section
Let's sync your site with forestry CMS.
Obviously you ought to have a github account. This is where your website source will live. Basically, forestry will read from github and write (commmit) to your github repo.
Requirement 1 : A Forestry account
Jump over to forestry and sign up for an account. Consider signing up using your github account. That way, you don't have to deal with passwords.
Requirement 2: A Netlify account (optional)
If you intend to host with something other than Netlify e.g github pages, please scroll on. Hosting with Netlify is a lot of fun though; I highly recommend it.
