Tina Migration Guide


Tina supports all frameworks and static site generators.


Similar to Forestry, Tina commits content changes to your repository.

Basic or Visual Editing

Tina's basic editing mode is similar to editing content with Forestry. Tina also supports visual editing which shows a live preview of your site as you edit content.


Create new branches and switch between them right from the Tina UI.

Open-Source and Extensible

Tina is very customizable and extensible due to it's open-source nature.

Local Development

TinaCMS can be run locally alongside your site. You can make changes to your content models and fields, and see the results immediately.

  • Tina does not have a preview button like Forestry. If previewing is needed, we recommend setting up visual editing for a live preview.
  • Tina only supports GitHub repositories at this time.
  • Tina offers an API so you can query for your content much like you would with a traditional headless CMS. This supports complex queries (filter, sort, etc), server-side rendering, client-side rendering, and incremental static regeneration.

You can see a full list of missing features between and TinaCMS here.
