I love the concept here and the demo video makes this look like it's going to be just what the programmer ordered.
I love the flexibility this promises to the developer for creating a creative and powerful site or app without the restrictions of conventional CMS systems. My question is, is there going to be a client side interface?
In other words is it possible for me to build a site in October and then let my client log in and access page content through a WYSIWYG editor?
Yes. I'm busy with a WYSIWYG editor plugin. Also with inline editing :)
Having the Markdown tab split vertically like in the Blog Plugin would already be enough for most of the users I guess. At least I like this idea. ;)
@Shahiem Excellent! Sounds awesome! Inline editing may be even better can't wait to see it in action.
If you ask me, Markdown is awesome and all you need.
Maybe having something a little more feature-rich, compared to the Markdown-like syntax in DokuWiki would be nice though ... especially in regards to Tables. ^^ Well, what so ever, Markdown is ok so far.
For the non technical user October CMS maybe isn't even the optimal choice anyway?!
I don’t understand why there is no Markdown editor for backend editing, except in the blog module. Because, clients don’t even remember the easy Markdown syntax, they need a menu with ten buttons or so.
On October’s feature list, there is the following information: Non-technical users can manage page contents with the WYSIWYG editor […]
But I can’t find that editor! The plugin WYSIWYG Editors adds an editor to pages or content, but it offers no Markdown syntax, only HTML.
Like deadcrowwalking, I also think that October is great for developers and webdesigners, but it might not be intuitive enough for end users.

I disagree. There are many reasons to use October is for client sites. With a few client friendly plugins, you can give them the power to write blog posts, create pages on the fly and monitor analytics from the backend.
