A developer’s guide to unlocking the value of APIs in content management
For smaller-scale projects, like blogs, no-API CMSs are great. But for what you get in simplicity and user-friendliness, you sacrifice in flexibility. In contrast, an API-only CMS does the opposite: you have more flexibility, but also need back end developers.
The no-API and API-only approaches then become two opposite sides of a spectrum where you, as an organization, must choose what you are willing to sacrifice in order to meet your basic content needs—and that’s where the friction exists for decision makers looking at different solutions.
In this white paper, we guide you through the various API approaches to content management by exploring:
- The evolution of the CMS and the no-API approach
- The pros and cons of an API-only architecture
- The happy middle ground between these two approaches in what is called the API-first approach
