Recommendations, new CMS platform

We want to develop a new CMS that fits our very specific and actual needs, so no WP, or any other existing CMS has to be used, while I have a general picture of what I want to develop to fulfill this objective I want to see others opinion and ideas about how to achieve this goal and MOST IMPORTANT, WHY?.

CMS characteristics:

  • CMS Client should be able to work Async against our existing API who handles database content and file uploads (media).
  • CMS Client should be able to work offline and sync data when is back online without user intervention, this may include images and other media.
  • CMS Client should run on the browser (we prefer Google Chrome and is standardized among our organization).

Considering these objectives and characteristics, what would you recommend or how you will do it?

I know I’m not very specific about this but the main idea is to see what others will do and why, and I don’t want to influence in any way with your choices, so please bear with me for now.

I believe that a typical CMS should have the following features:

  • Intuitive admin panel
  • Easy to use publishing tool
  • Out of the box SEO Tools
  • Social Media Integration
  • Detailed Analytics or integration with Google Analitycs
  • Security
  • Exemplary Support and good community
  • Users, roles and permissions
  • Ability to easily change themes
