I know there has been a lot of talk about defining a roadmap to build a docpad GUI, but I needed an admin panel with basic CMS features right now, so I just made one. It is far from being perfect but it works.
docpad install minicms
Then, you should definitely take a look at the docpad.coffee file of the blog example project in order to know how to configure the plugin.
To run the demo, download the zip file including a blog example project.
Go to the
examples/blog/ directory and run:
npm install./app run
Then you can try the admin panel by going on http://localhost:9778/cms/ (access: admin/password) and see what it becomes on clicking the "Site" item of the navbar.
