Contentful Introduces API-First Content Management Platform

Contentful, an API-first content management platform, is available to the public today. Contentful makes it easy to create and manage content in the cloud - and publish it everywhere: web, smartphones, tablets, signage, and whatever might come next.

Contentful provides a web-based authoring interface that lets non-technical editors work with content after configuring a content model. Designers independently craft the interface for end-users, while the powerful APIs give developers a simpler way to load content into apps, websites, or even to build completely custom editing interfaces.

“The days of a page-centric CMS are numbered,” explained Sascha Konietzke CEO and cofounder of Contentful. “Historically content management systems were built for HTML-based templates. With Contentful, content is completely separate from the presentation layer, so that you can develop custom experiences on any device.”

Contentful lets developers and designers use the tools of their choice. No more limitations from template-based systems. Contentful’s API is flexible and gives users the ability to deliver the best mobile experiences across mobile devices. SDKs are currently available for iOS, Ruby as well as interactive HTML5 and JavaScript.

David Gillis, a partner at creative agency Teehan+Lax, comments: “Contentful's platform-agnostic content set-up and its well thought out API infrastructure simplified the process of developing a mobile service for a client considerably. This let us focus more on our core features and the user experience.”

Contentful has been built for scale and delivers tens of millions of API requests to content projects in production, from very small mobile screens to large format, 70 inch multi-touch displays. Over 5,000 innovative brands took part in the Contentful beta. Customers of Contentful’s newly released platform include Nike, global media companies like Viacom and Playboy, and creative agencies like Teehan+Lax and AQ.

Contentful is open starting today at www.contentful.com.
