Lesson 2: Averting Monkey Patches with a Custom CMS

Nov 16, 2021


Welcome to RPM Design and Prototype's lesson on understanding and implementing a custom CMS to avoid monkey patches. Monkey patching refers to modifying or adding code to an existing module or class at runtime, which can lead to unexpected behavior and decreased website performance. Our custom CMS solution provides a reliable and efficient way to manage your website's content without the need for such code alterations, ensuring a smooth user experience and improved search engine rankings.

Why A Custom CMS?

When it comes to website development, using a custom CMS tailored to your specific needs can offer numerous advantages. By avoiding monkey patches, you maintain the integrity of the underlying codebase and prevent potential conflicts or security vulnerabilities that can arise from patching in new functionality. A custom CMS allows you to separate your content management system from the core code, making it easier to update, maintain, and scale your website as your business grows.

Eliminating Monkey Patches

Monkey patches are often introduced when additional features or modifications are required on an existing website. However, relying on patches can lead to code complexity, reduced performance, and difficulty in troubleshooting. RPM Design and Prototype specializes in building custom CMS solutions that eliminate the need for monkey patches altogether. By developing a CMS specifically tailored to your website, we ensure that any desired functionality is seamlessly integrated into the core codebase, guaranteeing optimal performance and long-term stability.

Advantages of a Custom CMS

Implementing a custom CMS offers several key advantages:

  • Enhanced Performance: With a custom CMS, unnecessary code can be removed, resulting in faster page loads and improved overall performance.
  • Scalability: A custom CMS allows for easier scalability, accommodating the growth and evolving needs of your business.
  • Improved Security: By avoiding monkey patches and maintaining a clean codebase, your website becomes less vulnerable to security breaches and attacks.
  • Streamlined User Experience: A custom CMS ensures a user-friendly interface for content management, enhancing the experience for both administrators and visitors.
  • Search Engine Optimization: Properly structured and optimized code, combined with the flexibility of a custom CMS, can significantly improve your website's search engine rankings.
