Alinea is a modern content management system.

- Content is stored in flat files and committed to your repository
- Content is easily queryable through an in-memory SQLite database
- Content is fully typed

Get started

Install alinea in your project directory

  1. ```sh
  2. npm install alinea
  3. ```

Initialize alinea's config file

  1. ```sh
  2. npx alinea init
  3. ```

Open the dashboard to have a look around

  1. ```sh
  2. npx alinea serve
  3. ```



Configure alinea in alinea.config.tsx

  1. ```tsx
  2. const BlogPost = alinea.type('Blog post', {
  3.   title: alinea.text('Blog entry title'),
  4.   body: alinea.richText('Body text')
  5. })
  6. ```


Retrieve content fully-typed and filter, order, limit and join as needed.  
Select only the fields you need.

  1. ```tsx
  2. import {initPages} from '@alinea/content/pages'
  3. const pages = initPages()
  4. console.log(
  5.   await pages
  6.     .whereType('BlogPost')
  7.     .where(post =>'Me'))
  8.     .select(post => ({title: post.title}))
  9. )
  10. ```

Content is available during static site generation and when server side querying.  
Content is bundled with your code and can be queried with zero network overhead.

Deploy anywhere

Alinea supports custom backends that can be hosted as a simple Node.js process or on serverless runtimes.
