  • Build a Task Manager CRUD App with React and Hygraph
    Hygraph, formerly known as GraphCMS, is a backend-only content management system (i.e., a headless CMS) that uses GraphQL to query data and perform mutations (or updates) to the content, making it accessible via a single endpoint (API) for display on any device without a built-in frontend or presentation layer. It allows teams to use a single content repository to deliver content from a single source to endless... - Source: / about 1 year ago
    GraphCMS - Offers free tier for small projects. GraphQL first API. Move away from legacy solutions to the GraphQL native Headless CMS - and deliver omnichannel content API first. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Generate Types for Your GraphQL Schemas in 5 Minutes
    I'm building an app using GraphCMS (super awesome, by the way) but the only gotcha is it doesn't offer a plugin to export your schema types. Since I can't function without TypeScript, that was a big problem the second I tried to write mutations or generate static pages using my schemas. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Serverless blog with 11ty, GraphCMS and Firebase
    In comes GraphCMS, a competitor of the beloved DatoCMS. It lacks some features - like repeatable blocks and the UI is a bit too cluttered, but has a generous free tier. For a blog, this will do just fine. - Source: / about 2 years ago
  • Using GitHub as a CMS
    I found most people were happy to recommend other headless CMS services like Strapi, Sanity, GraphCMS, etc which did seem to do the job I wanted of providing a platform for me to curate & manage my content without having to redeploy. But most of them had the same issues that I didn't like. - Source: / about 2 years ago
  • The Best Collected Details on the GraphQL Specification – Overview & Language
    GraphQL, as defined, is not a programming language and not capable of arbitrary computation. This is important to note, as many of the platforms and services that provide GraphQL APIs could lead one to think that GraphQL is providing much of the functionality in these platforms, when really it is merely the facade and presentation via API of the capabilities of the underlying systems and platforms (re: Hasura,... - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • So you have an idea for a startup—here's how to build it
    GraphCMS comes with an easy to use and simple graphical UI that allows non-technical people to add, edit, delete, and publish content. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • How do I "deliver" the portfolio website my client asked for?
    I've used to achieve a similar goal. It has a free tier, and has a web editor, you need to get familiar with GraphQL, but it's not too hard. The static frontend (that you can host on netlify or whereever) makes requests to graphcms to retrieve the content. Then the client will log in to graphcms and upload the content there. A bit finicky, but worked for my use case without anyone spending... Source: over 2 years ago
  • Free for dev - list of software (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, etc.)
    GraphCMS - Offers free tier for small projects. GraphQL first API. Move away from legacy solutions to the GraphQL native Headless CMS - and deliver omnichannel content API first. - Source: / over 2 years ago

  • 5 problem tou will face when switching to headless Wordpress
    Graphcms - great api (graphql - gatsby fans rejoice!), free up to a million api calls / 100gb in assets. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • I built a full stack serverless e-commerce site with Next.js. What I learned and how it might help you
    Since I'm primarily a front-end developer I wanted to simplify the backend as much as possible. User authentication is handled by Auth0 as a tried and trusted authenticator while Hasura graphql handles the creation and maintenance of the users database. Finally I have GraphCMS as a graphql based headless CMS to handle products and everything related to them. - Source: / about 3 years ago
  • An Introduction to GraphQL on Replit
    Note that GraphCMS allows you to create a new project completely from scratch, however for our purposes we only want to have a working endpoint with placeholder content. If you are interested in diving deeper into GraphCMS, you can consult their documentation at - Source: / about 3 years ago
  • The Best Open Source Headless CMS Software
    GraphCMS is a native GraphQL headless content management system. The objective of this headless cms platform is to provide users with an exceptional digital experience while simplifying content management. GraphCMS is frontend agnostic and is developed by GraphCMS GmbH. - Source: / about 3 years ago
  • Shoppable CMS with Commerce.js
    Thankfully, APIs like GraphCMS allow you to embed datasources from other APIs into its own GraphQL Content API — Read more. - Source: / about 3 years ago
  • Managing a page with hundreds of thousands of visitors as a complete beginner?
    Additional food for thought. Have you thought about using something like a headless cms? An example is graphcms. You pretty much get a free graphql api and can defer database life and scaling till later. And strictly speaking, I wouldn't be surprised if you're in the free tiers until you scale up. You can migrate the data since it's an API into a database later after you have captured market fit. Source: about 3 years ago
  • Apply Graphql to CMS
    I had been eyeing up GraphCMS but maybe I don't need it! Source: about 3 years ago
  • GraphQL for CMS - the next big thing?...
    Thanks that's really interesting. So presumably this is something where I should use sanity or contentful to avoid managing all that complexity. I did come across GraphCMS which sounds like it ticks all the boxes but of course you don't know until you give it a go. Sadly not open source. It does appear to be kind of "tail-less" as well as headless in that it can essentially provide data silo federation which I... Source: about 3 years ago
