What is a content type?

With static site generators, different content like posts, documentation, etc. are usually stored in separate folders (eg. src/posts). This is called a content type in Spinal.

What is a team member?

Do you offer discounts for nonprofits?

There’s something even better! If you are a nonprofit and eligible you can use Spinal for free! The only request? Add a link to Spinal prominently on your site. Get in touch for all requirements.

Will there a cyber monday deal?
