API-first Content Management System

4.32/5 (19 reviews)

Contentful overview

Content management has entered the post-HTML era, but your content management tools hasn't. Contentful will save your company time and money by not having your staff re-writing and styling content for every web and mobile app you have.

With Contentful your editors and writers collaborate real-time in our beautiful content editor and in a content model that they can easily update. Once the content delivery is set up through our API, your non-technical employees can publish content across platforms with the click of a button. (Don't have a developer on staff? Don't worry, we'll find you one!)

Companies like Asics, Disney, McAfee and Viacom are already delivering content globally through Contentful. Sign up for a free trial today and please let us know any questions you might have. We are happy to help :)

Very inflexible when it comes to styling changes, use only if you have plenty of engineers

It is impossible for users to create elements that are totally out of line with the corporate design. Contentful also loads faster than many other CMS.

It is truly cloud-first for a headless approach. You can build your content model and control your input with easy validation (min/max/regex) and even dependencies on other models. It is truly headless and integration with node, react,, and php have all been relatively easy. Node was definitely the easiest integration.

It provides us complete flexibility within projects and gives us the capacity to distribute to different types of platforms with less hassle.

The free developer plan is amazing, and overall Contentful has made my life SO MUCH BETTER. I no longer have to worry about updates, databases, or clients breaking their sites.The UI of Contentful is superb in its own right, but especially when compared to other similar CMS interfaces. Everything is laid out neatly, and it's easy to sort and edit your content. When paired with a static site generator like Gatsby, Contentful is WAY more safe, dependable, and low-maintenance than WordPress (which I'm sad to say, after being a WP dev for years, is a complete mess).
