Contentful is a content management system that was created for content publishers. It helps content creators easily create, organize and publish content on any platform they choose.
Contentful provides a headless CMS service which means you can have content stored in the cloud or your own data center without worrying about managing the server infrastructure. The Contentful API makes it easy to integrate content from other systems as well as to export content as needed for sharing with third parties.
The user interface of Contentful has been designed specifically for editors and writers, making it easier than ever before to manage content creation and publication across multiple channels whether that's web-based publishing or mobile apps. This intuitive UI also allows content authors to focus more time on their core skills - content creation - rather than content management.
The content management system of Contentful is based on content types, which are structured around content fields. Fields are the building blocks for content creators to take advantage of when incorporating rich content into their content models. Field values can be displayed as shortcodes in the CMS or used as embeddable content for use in content management.
Contentful supports content translations based on content types and content fields to enable multilingual publishing. Content will automatically be translated for you if needed and the content model ensures that content is only published once and in the right language. The multilingual capabilities of Contentful can also be used to provide content versions for specific markets, such as content for the US, Europe or Asia.
Contentful is available as an on-premise solution to users who want to host content themselves or as a headless content service that can be used in any application via web services APIs.
