Working copies and live updating for collaborative editing

Our working copies are designed to help you easily master the challenges posed by collaborative content production. Being virtual copies of your published content, working copies let you create and edit content individually or as a team or as several teams. You can publish all your changes in one step, or any number of altered pages you select.

Fiona’s live updating allows editors working on the same page in the same working copy to see all the updates made, almost in real-time. Collaboration has never been easier.

Technology and integration

Infopark CMS Fiona 8 is based on universally recognized, fully documented industry standards. Its open architecture allows you to deliver modern single-page JavaScript apps, or web pages generated by a Ruby on Rails app. In both cases, common web standards enable you to easily integrate systems that are based on different technologies or platforms, e.g. enterprise-critical ERP or CRM applications.

Infopark's solution represents a solid though flexible basis for quickly utilizing third-party web services (provided, for example, by our WebCRM) and embedding their functionality in your site.

Installation and maintenance

Fiona 8 is made available as Docker images. Docker is a tool for creating, deploying, managing and running applications using containers. Containers facilitate scaling your web application, they packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.

Some of the Docker images provided are proprietary and require a license to run, others are in the public domain and freely available. Docker Compose is used for configuring and orchestrating the Docker containers Fiona 8 is comprised ofd.

Requirements

The following system requirements apply. They are subject to change and will be refined as needed in the future.

Operating system: The OS of the target machine needs to support Docker and Docker Compose.

RAM: 32 GB or more.
