Convert Dnn ☢️ and Oqtane 🩸 into a CMS

2sxc is a CMS- and Meta-Plugin for Dnn/DotNetNuke and Oqtane. It makes content editing easier than other CMSs like Wordpress, while giving the designer full control. It's also a CMF like Drupal. And a very cool EAV data-management system. And a headless REST API. And a lot more.

2sxc is used to provide web-site-builder functionality. It has a simple Content mode where users just add images, designed text/image blocks, links etc. Then there's the sophisticated App mode, where user add standalone functional apps like blogs, galleries and more. Most apps are on github and can be downloaded from the app-catalog.
