Great CMS for native mobile apps and progressive web apps

2019-07-09

My company (a software development house) uses GraphCMS for both our own website built with Gatsby and GraphCMS and for customer projects incl. native mobile apps and progressive web apps.

Pros

We are building heavily for mobile devices, so using GraphQL for our content APIs is really helping our app performance.

Cons

You need to get used to the “headless” way in order to use the system’s full potential.

Absolutely amazing. Hands down the best headless CMS out there.

2018-01-30

The development time for both the initial prototypes and production versions is substantially shorter thanks to GraphCMS and it's wonderful API.

Pros

The ease of use, slick design, powerful features (and how fast the new ones are being added in) and the fact that everything simply is a GraphQL endpoint makes graphcms a real alternative for wordpress and other cms solutions. every single one of our projects that requires a CMS is making it's way to GraphCMS as of writing this.

Cons

The only thing that really bothered me with GraphCMS is that the customizability and extensibility of it is limited right now.

Scalable CMS, great for multi-language content, loved by our marketing team

2019-05-07

Pros

Why we chose GraphCMS: rich-text visual editor, easy-to-use localization feature (our content is in 11 languages), scalability (several hundred thousand visitors per month) and the ability to write content into the CMS programmatically (awesome for importing content from other systems).

Cons

GraphCMS is built to handle structured data, so its added value is lower if you are handling freeform marketing websites.

Easily my favorite headless CMS

2019-03-22

Pros

The product is designed in a way that it's obvious they were thinking about their users.

Cons

Every once in a while you will need to manually refresh the dashboard for new content to appear, mainly if you're adding many small data objects in quick succession - it's not a huge issue as long as you think to refresh and don't create duplicates.

A truly author-friendly headless CMS

2019-07-29

The project is a part of a large non-profit initiative and the goal is to feature current content (news stories, celebrity endorsements).

Pros

It allows content creators without any technical knowledge to easily write and publish articles – without bothering our developers.

Cons

The project dashboard is very developer-focused.

I love GraphCMS

2019-07-17

I use GraphCMS to prototype GraphQL schemas, as well as for all my GraphQL app/db that isn't tenant.

Pros

I love the flexibility of GraphCMS. It's meant to be a headless CMS, and it thrives at that, but don't get it twisted. GraphCMS can be a super powerful GraphQL database. I use it for my administrative tables, as well as for other projects.

Cons

In order to fully take advantage of GraphCMS' flexibility for app development, there needs to be a better authentication layer.
