CrafterCMS embeds FreeMarker to provide a high-performance, clean, flexible, and tolerant of syntax variance, templating engine to render HTML directly from CrafterCMS.

It allows developers to model the content as general reusable items, and fold those into pages. Pages aggregate content from components as needed and are associated with a FreeMarker template that can render the final page. The choice of HTML tools and frameworks doesn’t matter to CrafterCMS. Developers can use whatever front-end technology they want. For development React, Vue, Angular, Flutter or similar SPA, please see here

When you’re ready for development, and if you use Docker, review Local Development with Docker.
