Pagelime is a CMS (Content Management System) that allows users to manage their sites' content using a web application or FTP API. This service was designed for use by web designers, web agencies, and web developers. Pagelime will function regardless of where a user's site is hosted or what scripting platform (if any) is employed. It requires no changes to be made to the site's underlying architecture.
Users can mark up their web pages using CSS classes to let Pagelime know which parts are meant to be editable. When users make edits from the Pagelime web application, these edits are published to the CSS-marked areas via FTP. Pagelime's FTP-XML API allows developers to separate a site's content from its HTML code by mirroring the HTML content in XML, rather than using CSS mark-up. The resulting XML files can then be accessed via FTP.
