The Mediacurrent team is proud to introduce the latest version of our open source Rain CMS, now for Drupal 9. The latest version ships (currently in beta) with a brand new theme and admin experience. Make your move to Drupal 9 with speed and confidence. 

The New 'Nimbus' Theme

The new base theme comes with a full Pattern Lab style guide to make development easier using a component-based theming approach. The new Rain CMS theme also adds color module support for in-browser color configuration. We wanted a great out-of-box experience for content authors and administrators so we pre-load the site with sample content to make it simple to get started.

Rain Admin 2.0

With the latest version of Rain Admin, the content editing experience is more intuitive to use. A jump-navigation on the right-hand side helps authors move between different sections of the page. The UX for Paragraphs has also been improved to make it visually easier to manage components on the page.

Let’s Get Started

For developers, you can download and install Rain CMS 9 using our Drupal project template: https://bitbucket.org/mediacurrent/drupal-project/src/9.x/. Setup and installation remain the same as our previous version, with detailed instructions provided in the project README file.

For more information on the benefits of Rain CMS D9 and to schedule a free demo, please visit our contact page or chat with us right now (see bottom right corner of the page). We would be happy to talk more about your project or schedule a demonstration.
