All you need to do is select your repository, specify where your Markdown files in Middleman are located, and your content is automatically imported into your Spinal dashboard.

Adored by both developers and non-developers

Your developers love Middleman for its focus on clean, maintainable code and the vast community of plugins and extensions that contribute to its continued growth.
