Requirements

In order to integrate Fonto Editor with your CMS, a number of requirements should be met by the CMS.

The following basic technical requirements should be met in order to integrate Fonto Editor in the CMS:

  • The CMS must be able to host static files in order to serve the Fonto Editor single page application build.

  • The CMS must be able to implement custom endpoints/API’s to be used by Fonto Editor.

  • The CMS must host the endpoints/API’s on the same domain as the Fonto Editor static files are hosted in to prevent CORS issues.

  • The CMS must be able to provide functionality for the user to open a document in Fonto Editor, for example by overriding the open/edit action or adding a custom open/edit action; make sure these actions are only available on documents which Fonto Editor can actually open, usually XML files using the schema Fonto Editor is configured for.

Furthermore you need a build of Fonto Editor that is configured for the schema used in your content.
