Brightspot's new Design System offers hundreds of pre-built templates, styles and interactions that let CMS users get started fast, plus makes it easy to customize your digital experiences with or without code.
Developers are responsible for aligning technology to support the mission, strategy and processes of their organization. Here are 10 ways Brightspot CMS empowers and improves the lives of developers.
If you’re a developer, you’re well aware of the importance of learning by example. As part of the effort of the Brightspot Developer Portal, we’ve put together a set of code examples that will help you better understand how to use Brightspot’s implementation of GraphQL.
Brightspot's standard theme includes front-end templates for attractively rendering articles, videos, listicles, promos, and much more. Developers can build on those standard templates to deploy themes that range from simple to extravagant.
A common task in web application development is deploying API endpoints that are managed by application admins—a situation that may introduce errors into a production environment. Brightspot’s native classes facilitate the deployment of robust and secure endpoints.
Streamlined processes for creating and managing API endpoints are essential, and the technical complexities associated with APIs can often pose challenges. Brightspot provides a proven, field-tested UI for intuitively designing API endpoints.
Customizing a theme is a big part of front-end development. To facilitate that development, Brightspot provides Styleguide, a webpack-based application that previews a theme with mock text and images. With Styleguide you can immediately evaluate any change by reloading the browser page.
Learn the difference between traditional (or coupled) CMS, decoupled CMS, and headless CMS architecture, as well as the pros and cons for each.
Brightspot handles images a little differently than other CMSs, specifically in a way that gives businesses more freedom and flexibility with how they want to work with images. In this way, forget your notions of a CMS and a digital asset manager. With its robust capabilities and integration-ready flexibility, Brightspot is the only digital-asset management platform you'll ever need.
