Perch Runway 3

Landing soon - Perch Runway gets even better

Perch Runway 3 is currently in the final stages of development and will be in your hands really soon. If you already have a Perch Runway 2 license this will be a free upgrade as we want everyone to get the new features and functionality we’ve developed.

Here are some of our favourite things about this new version of Perch Runway.

Headless CMS

A “headless CMS” is a content management system that is decoupled from page-based output. Typically headless CMS will output JSON, which you can then use in your site or app. This is useful if you want to create content for anything that consumes JSON. Rather than having to wrangle that content out of messy HTML, you get nice clean structured data all ready to use.

Runway 3 can operate in a headless CMS mode, however you can also have the best of both worlds. In many real life situations what you need is both web content and headless content, which you get right out of the box with Runway 3. Use our first class content management to create content for your website pages and your mobile app. Save yourself development time while saving your content editors from creating duplicate content.

A Redesigned User Interface

We’ve kept your content editors in mind while redesigning the Perch Runway user interface. We’ve made mobile editing a first class citizen, as so many people now want to update their sites on the go.

We’ve given you new ways to guide clients and content editors through the interface. You can customize the menu with the options they use most often. We’ve added new features aimed at enhancing the usability of interface elements, building on the existing usability of Perch Runway 2.

New APIs for Add-on developers

Perch Runway can act as a framework for your own applications through our comprehensive API. In Runway 3 we’ve made it even easier for you to add to Runway, and to make your add-ons look like the rest of the application. This means you can take advantage of our templating, and other features to build custom integrations that are fully part of the CMS.

Save development time by leaning on our functionality, and concentrate on your unique additions. This will then make life easier for your editors when the additions act like the rest of the CMS that they are familiar with.
