GraphCMS Overview

What is GraphCMS?

GraphCMS is a modern content management platform that helps teams bring content to any channel. High-traffic publishing and marketing websites, multi-language e-commerce platforms, interactive mobile apps, voice apps – GraphCMS is the solid content infrastructure used by organizations like Discovery, Tchibo, and Shure.

GraphCMS empowers enterprises to:

- centralize editorial, product and marketing content and streamline workflows;
- cut developer implementation times by more than 5x;
- cut IT hiring costs by letting teams use their preferred development framework;
- gather content from users, partners, and external systems in one place.

GraphCMS’s API-first content management system allows users to build essential content infrastructures for their digital products, while setting the stage for content creators. Users can build and define everything about their GraphQL API including structures, relations, and permissions. Content creators can manage their content using the tools they're already used to, such as text editors, asset workflows and advanced roles, with no pull requests required. Organizations can use the GraphQL API to start feeding content into any platform.

The GraphCMS platform enables freedom of expression without templates or plugins, allowing users to build their digital products API-first, and exactly how they envision them. Tools for true multi-platform development including mobile, web, VR, IoT, and more, are all serviced by a single GraphQL API with automatic documentation, advanced filters, and type safety.

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

The benefits are mostly laid out in the pros. To summarize though, I'd say that the biggest benefits are how insanely fast we can now build CMS based products at Blazity. The development time for both the initial prototypes and production versions is substantially shorter thanks to GraphCMS and it's wonderful API.

Easily my favorite headless CMS

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

A truly author-friendly headless CMS

Our team uses GraphCMS to push breaking news stories to our project’s webpage. The project is a part of a large non-profit initiative and the goal is to feature current content (news stories, celebrity endorsements). Authors are able to quickly add content to the CMS without sacrificing the high quality our readers expect.

Great CMS for native mobile apps and progressive web apps

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. Godspeed!

Cons

The only thing that really bothered me with GraphCMS is that the customizability and extensibility of it is limited right now. Fortunately it's changing now and the webapp is getting open sourced!

Pros

GraphCMS is just so easy to use. Creating new data models and populating them for use on the front end is intuitive and the interface is very clean. The product is designed in a way that it's obvious they were thinking about their users. The biggest thing I was looking for was a data store that would be easy for a non-technical person to use while still providing customization for me as a developer and GraphCMS hits all the points I was looking for in those areas.

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. Other than that the performance is very good.

Pros

My team needed a scalable headless CMS for our homepage, company blog, and all of our periodic content. 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).

Although our front-end design was ready before we chose GraphCMS, the integration was effortless and fast.

Cons

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

The project is a part of a large non-profit initiative and the goal is to feature current content (news stories, celebrity endorsements). Authors are able to quickly add content to the CMS without sacrificing the high quality our readers expect.

Pros

Speaking from the author’s perspective, GraphCMS works really well for our project. We needed a straightforward headless CMS that could be set up very quickly. It allows content creators without any technical knowledge to easily write and publish articles – without bothering our developers. The pre-defined roles and the visual text editor are central to our workflow.

Cons

The project dashboard is very developer-focused. It would be nice to have more information for editors like recently published articles or articles for review.

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

Designing new content architecture is super fast and easy with GraphCMS. We are building heavily for mobile devices, so using GraphQL for our content APIs is really helping our app performance. Our developers also love the code autocomplete function and the self-generated API documentation in the API Explorer.

Quite intuitive UI for business users.

Cons

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