How to add Netilify-CMS to my existing raw html and css based website?

Hey people!
I have deployed my Website made using raw HTML, CSS, and js on netlify using manual deploys and also enabled continuous deployment. Now i want to know how can i add the netlify-cms to my existing website. I have been through docs and found that netlify-cms can be applied to the existing site made with any static site generator like Jekyll and others. But mine website normal created with raw HTML and CSS. Also I am newbie . So please consider guiding me, It will help me a lot.
my directory structure is:
–>mywebsite(main folder)
---------->assests(contains images folders, css and js)
---------->index.html
---------->about.html
---------->contact.html
---------->sitemap.xml

Thanks!

Hi @OnlinePage,
You can follow https://www.netlifycms.org/docs/add-to-your-site/#app-file-structure.
It mentions how to proceed if you’re static site generator is not listed.
You need to create an admin directory with index.html and config.yml files.
The index.html should look like this:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8" />
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
  <title>Content Manager</title>
</head>
<body>
  <!-- Include the script that builds the page and powers Netlify CMS -->
  <script src="https://unpkg.com/netlify-cms@^2.0.0/dist/netlify-cms.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

For the config.yml you can follow https://www.netlifycms.org/docs/add-to-your-site/#configuration

Hey, @erez thanks first for your reply!
as per your instructions, i have successfully made netlify-cms.
But the major thing is that i don’t how to make my website content editable through config.yml file.
Since in the docs it is stated that i need to define collection based on my site structure.
But i am completely stuck and don’t know how to define collections for my site.
my website is THIS
. And according to my website, all content are hardcoded in Html format using those

and tags, now suppose if i want to make the area in the image i below

to be editable, then what should i do?
please please help!
is there any way that i can define such collections or any site to help me get started writing my own collections

Thanks

Best thing I can think of (without using a static site generator), is have the CMS save information as json files and have a build step to use that information to update your html files.
More about formats here:
