Harmony – Develop Powerful Sites

Harmony is a web-application that people with varying levels of web expertise can use to create and manage websites and blogs. With flexible templates, automatic updates, and zero installations, Harmony might just be the easiest way for developers, publishers, and editors to manage multiple sites.

Once you sign up for Harmony, there are three basic ways to get started building your first site. You can learn by example and watch as Harmony sets up a sample site; you can check out descriptions and screencasts that show all the necessary steps for creating a site from scratch; or you can jump right in and immediately start building a site of your own. For true novices, the screencast section is the best place to begin. Although the Harmony dashboard page has been created in a way that is highly intuitive and straightforward to use, you’ll still find it easier to navigate after watching a few of Harmony’s introductory videos. Learn how to manage multiple sites, use your own domain names, and add additional administrators to the sites you manage. In addition to creating themes and choosing templates for the sites you run, you can also use the web-platform to manage the content that your writers and editors post.

For designers and developers, the benefits of Harmony are clear. The web-based platform lets you create new sites from scratch with no server setup. It also offers a single sign-on system that gives you access to all the sites you manage in just a few quick clicks. Website owns and editors, meanwhile, will appreciate Harmony’s top-rated flexibility, reliability, and security features.
