More Brightspot Front-End Features

First developed by Facebook in 2012, headless CMS architecture is the solution of choice for many content businesses these days. GraphQL is the programming language that enables flexible connection with programming APIs that support headless CMS integrations like the one offered through Brightspot.
As a technical leader, finding the right CMS for your organization will require flexibility, and that isn’t always easy for some platforms.
An API-first CMS provides the advantages of headless CMS—API-only—with rich capabilities like workflow, search and content delivery. With an API-first platform, businesses have the option to use a number of pre-built integrations to save valuable development time and effort.
