API-first Content Management System

4.2/5 (5 reviews)
1,578     25,110

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 :)

 Contentful...

WYSIWYG interface is ok, but nothing crazy. Uploading images is a real pain and can only be done effectively (seo) by adding images one by one. How and when content appears when published is still a mystery to us. Technical limitations not mentioned, poor support.

Cons

Support says it all: "we only commit to offering community support in your current subscription plan". Even when you find-out your plan does not work. Check this post if you want to know more: http://bit.ly/2dWl5by

The perfect solution if you're looking for a flexibel CMS for your projects

21/07/2015

We choose Contentful for our project after comparing many other CMS solutions , whom all seemed to make the process more complicated rather than easier. Contentful on the other hand is a very flexible, straightforward and easy to implement backend system. It serves your data back in JSON which makes it perfect to connect any kind of frontend, without being limited by any predifined layout or formatting. The CMS interface itself is also very easy to manage. You define your content-types, lay them out exactly how you want them, and, in our case, let the client do the rest. All in all a perfect solution if you're looking for a flexibel and easy to use CMS system, and even more so when working with multiple platforms.

Response from Contentful


The web app/UI is currently undergoing a big revision, so stay tuned for a great UX and task completion oriented edior.

We will review the Firefox issues. Though our testing so far has shown nothing. MIght also be a plugin issue.

Content Management done right.

15/07/2014

After deciding to integrate an offline experience to our mobile shopping app Cash to Code I started looking at syncing solutions for mobile. Shouldn't be too hard to find something, many apps have to have this problem - or so I thought. Well, not that easy as it turned out. What was out there at that time was unfinished, limited or just broken. By accident I found Contentful and their API focused CMS. Now some months later we are live in the app stores and I couldn't be happier how it all turned out. Yes, back then we couldn't just drop in a SDK an get all the sync functionality out of the box (I hear this is different now), but we just wrote it ourselves based on the great API documentation and the sync endpoint. We use the API to create our content on Contentful directly from our backend system, then it just gets synced to all the clients out there.

Pros

API. Sync endpoint. People.
