GraphCMS Brings GraphQL to Headless Content Management

By Mike Johnston August 1, 2017 News & Headlines

GraphCMS, a startup from Giessen, Germany has officially announced the public launch of their identically called product. It is the first headless content management system that fully utilizes the power of GraphQL. Open-sourced by Facebook, GraphQL is a new architectural pattern for APIs that provides significant speed gains in developing digital products. With GraphQL-powered APIs, developers can build future-proof content experiences that are well-suited for the requirements of tomorrow’s devices.

GraphCMS enables developers to build powerful content APIs in a matter of minutes, while it gives content editors all the tools they need to manage their content. The hosted content APIs can then be easily consumed by websites, apps or any other platform or partner. The founders describe their product as content microservice, as it fits in any tool chain dealing with content.

"We are excited to finally launch GraphCMS. Going headless is the right choice if you want to build a sustainable content strategy and we quickly realized the potential of bringing GraphQL into that equation. Developers love our generated GraphQL-APIs as they provide a much improved developer experience compared to REST-APIs", says Michael Lukaszczyk, CEO and co-founder of GraphCMS.

The GraphCMS team has years of experience in content management and API design. In addition, Michael says: "This is just the beginning and we are excited to bring significant improvements to the world of content management. We want to enable developers and content editors to easily create the best digital experiences they can think of, without having to struggle with REST-APIs.".
