First find the best user experience and expectations, and then look at existing or new technologies later.
During our analysis of what we understand as structured content, our expectations of the initiative and taking a look into other CMS, it showed that this topic is very complex.
To achieve results more quickly and straighten the schedule, we identified three main parts which should be covered in separate working groups. These working groups will act in parallel but will constantly share the working progress and ideas to ensure the common goal.
Editing Interface UX
This working group will focus on a concept for UX, creating wireframes, mockups and layouts, to make content management for the editor more intuitive.
Content Block Creation
The focus of this working group will be registration and maintenance to ease up the creation process of content blocks and their hierarchical relationship. This group will aim for a technical concept for registration and maintenance of content blocks as well as a re-evaluation of processes for storing and connecting data of content blocks.
Containers, wrappers etc. will be the things this working group will concentrate on. A concept for semantic content interpretation in frontend is therefore the first goal to be achieved.
