In the editorial context of the CMS, a lot of images are used as "illustrating content". Handling these assets in the editorial workflow rises complexity of a CMS.
With Neos, editors can organize those assets professionally. The extensibility of the media-module allows to integrate external libraries and storages.
Extendable Media Management
- Media Library
- Neos has a media-library where editors upload and manage images and files.
- These files ("assets") can be searched, tagged and grouped in collections.
- Replace Files
- Editors can replace files in the Media module and all places where they are used get updated accordingly.
- Cloud Storage Support
- Asset Sources
- External Assets can be intergrated via "AssetSourceInterface". This allows to connect DAM-Systems as well as MediaLibraries.
- "Asset Management" Integrations
- Digital Asset Management Systems manage media libraries across whole companies. Neos integrates PixxIO, more integrations are being developed.
- Photo-library Integrations
- MediaWiki Integration
- Using "assetsource mediawiki", the whole MediaWiki library is available via the Neos media-library.
- Asynchronous Image Generation
- Cropping and scaling of images are deferred optionally until the image is actually requested by a browser to optimize performance.
- Responsive Images
Neos Media Browser
- Asset upload
- Image-Manipulation (=variants)
There are many resources involved in the CMS, that are not really content-elements. All these functional and presentational assets are part of the tool, but not really "content" (example: icons). Therefore these files are versioned.
Fusion resources organization
- Fusion file-naming conventions
- Fusion folder-structure conventions
File resources conventions
As fusion expects respective resources on "the right place" to work correctly, there are furthermore recommendations and conventions to increase standardization of packages
- private assets
- public assets
