About 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.

Key benefits of GraphCMS

• Use native support of GraphQL with generated content APIs for power, flexible and accurate data fetching.

• Use mutation APIs to open a new world of interactive content management. Data import, user generated content and more becomes a breeze with GraphCMS.

• Create projects according to specifications without the heavy handed opinion of the traditional CMS. Categories, tags and pages are possible, but optional.

• Use GraphCMS's un-opinionated CMS to launch the right features for your app, instead of fighting features you don't need.

• Enjoy the built-in API explorer to test your queries and preview the data response.

• GraphCMS's quick and intelligent customer support will always do their best to help users get the most out of GraphCMS.

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.

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!

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

Reviewed on 2019/05/07

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.

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.

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.
