Develop 3rd-party addons for Pulse
***Warning: This is not a get rich quick scheme***
Who is Dave?
He has a Ferrari and has made $millions doing something online in his free time. Lucky him. He certainly wasn't developing 3rd-party add ons for Pulse CMS, that's for sure.
But he damn should have. He'd be much more fulfilled for one thing.
Welcome to Pulse and your new playground of fun.
A few reasons why you should develop for Pulse. It's not a get-rich-quick-scheme and certainly not a weekend of champagne showers, but it will be a fun ride and here's why:
- Reason #1
- Pulse is backed by a small, close-knit, but growing, community - as you can see from the forums.
- Reason #2
- It's a solid code base and the product and has been developed over the past 7 years, and with a good reputation.
- Reason #3
- Pulse powers 4,036 deployed sites and it's growing all the time.
- Reason #4
- It's easy to theme using pulse tags and convert any HTML template into the Pulse templating engine. It won't make you bang your head against a wall, like with that other famous CMS.
- Reason #5
- It's also easy to make PHP/HTML/JS/CSS plugins that extend the power of Pulse using the blocks and power blocks built into the source code.
- Reason #6
- Pulse is a really easy to use CMS that customers really love. They dig the simplicity of it.
- Reason #7
- There's active development of the source code with a full 12-18 month golden roadmap already planned going into future versions, and then grow from there. It's going to be around for a while and with a bright future.
- Reason #8
- There's reinvigorated exuberance surrounding the project as now under new leadership!
- Reason #9
- An opportunity to get in early and be a leading active 3rd-party developer for when this project really blossoms.
- Reason #10
- Earn money doing what you love or increase your online reputation as an awesome developer by helping an active and growing product.
- Reason #11
- Get a cool tee on the house to welcome you to the developer family, that way you can look as cool as the CMS.
- Reason #12
- Talk directly with other developers on our private Slack channel. Grow your business, share tips and even merge code or ideas to the Pulse core. We want to grow everything together. All ships rise in high tide.
The reasons to use Pulse as a CMS can be seen here, there's no reason not to ❤ love it. And you can help Pulse users love it even more.
