DocPad CMS Plugins is essentially what we aimed to do with Web Write.

It would be cool if we could create a Prismic plugin for DocPad.

Wow, Prismic’s product seems impressive. Would the idea be to use the Prismic content repository as a source for content that could be served by DocPad? If so, that sounds pretty useful.

Off topic: What is the current status of Web Write? It seems to be backburner.

Correct. The company that was funding it’s development dropped the funding. So it’s on the backburner.

A note on the resolution.

WebWrite won’t see the light of day, it was the first in its category, but it never went further than a proof of concept. The market is now dominated by players like Contentful etc. As such, WebWrite should be considered closed.

Can DocPad take advantage of this? Yes and no.

As such, DocPad will be returning to be a SSG. The role of importers will need to occur outside of the in-memory realm.
