Frosty CMS: Introduction


The goal of this project is to create a Blog CMS from scratch using Bootstrap, Node, Express, EJS and MongoDB. In this post I’d like to outline the features it will include as well as create a wire frame mock up. This obviously will not be a fully featured CMS like WordPress, but we are going to get the basics down.


  • User accounts
  • Post creation (only available to users with permission)
  • Post display on homepage
  • Viewing of individual posts


Subject to change, but this is the rough idea.
