hey @kiro, I'm Didier, creator of LocomotiveCMS (www.locomotivecms.com). You do not need to re-deploy for a simple typo because the structure of your site and the content are definitely separated. You or your content editor will use the user back-office to fix that typo.

However, if you want to change the layout or tweak the style, you have to use Wagon and its frontend tools (SASS, Compass, Less, Compass), make your changes, test them locally with the embedded web server in Wagon, commit them to git if you version your site structure and then deploy. The redeployment won't touch the live data unless you modified your data structure. Hope my answer was clear :-)

Thanks for the answer! I will give Locomotive a try next time I need to install a new CMS.
