Cactus vs DodgerCMS: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cactus as "Static site generator for designers. Uses Python and Django templates". Cactus makes setting up a website look easy. Choose a template for a blog, portfolio or single page and Cactus generates all files and folders to get you on your way. On the other hand, DodgerCMS is detailed as "*A static markdown CMS built on top of Amazon S3 *". DodgerCMS is a static markdown CMS built on top of Amazon S3. It is a clean and simple alternative to heavy content management systems. There are no databases to manage, deployments to monitor, or massive configuration files. Just focus on writing your content and the results are live immediately.

Cactus and DodgerCMS can be primarily classified as "Static Site Generators" tools.

Some of the features offered by Cactus are:

  • Mac App
  • Focus on editing - Under the hood, Cactus runs a small local web server for each website you're working on. This makes it possible to build your website locally, using modern web technologies, and have the results generated to a collection of flat files.
  • Live preview anywhere - Cactus monitors all changes you make to your files and automatically refreshes your browser. Preview your project on mobile devices, and they'll instantly refresh too.

On the other hand, DodgerCMS provides the following key features:

  • Full markdown editor
  • Simple toolbar and easy file manipulation
  • Github flavored markdown with syntax highlighting

Cactus and DodgerCMS are both open source tools. It seems that Cactus with 3.29K GitHub stars and 316 forks on GitHub has more adoption than DodgerCMS with 281 GitHub stars and 39 GitHub forks.
