Blog markdown backend?


I’m thinking about making a blog with ember.js. I need it to be ajax because there is going to be music player on the site and I want it to be able to play while you’re browsing. I thought this would be a good chance to learn ember.js.

What I would like is some kind of dashboard/cms for writing posts in markdown. It would then spit out a markdown file for each post and then turn that into a json file for ember.js.

I have searched a lot but I haven’t really seen any thing that does this.

You can get Wordpress or Kirby to make a json file but it’s not what they are meant to do.

I don’t know anything about backends so I don’t know if this is a bad way to do this, but I really like the idea of doing it without a database and markdown files for portability. How would you do this?


@marktheis I made a blog with ember you can see the repo here: I added an admin section for editing and creating blog posts with markdown. there is a real simple nodejs backend using rethinkDB too.


Great thanks. I will take a look at that. Seems to load fast :slight_smile:
