Squirrel Notes Uniform

Uniform: I got a demo of Uniform earlier today. It's a publication system that combines content from multiple sources, passes it to a rendering system of some kind (think GatsbyJS or Nuxt), then automatically deploys the result to a hosting platform.

Uniform helps you connect to existing systems, even legacy systems. [...] Your site content may come from multiple sources, even multiple CMSs. Uniforms unifies this content for you.

Uniform is built by Altola, which is a bunch of very smart ex-Sitecore engineers. Not surprisingly, one of the initial supported content sources is Sitecore.

Static sites from CMS is not new, but Uniform manages to preserve all personalization functionality. They serialize the personalization rules and execute them client-side. That part made me do a Keanu-style “whoa”.
