Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • Contentful comes really handy when you need to edit portions or paragraphs in your website. Besides, it supports a wide array of languages, which is a big plus when working with a multilingual team.

  • It has a good balance of cost and features. Their API is feature rich allowing us to extend Contentful and tightly integrate it with our systems.

  • Cons

  • Only that the way that the pages are represented could be a little more visual when relating elements together. But it's a very minor thing.

  • It is much better for new projects than for legacy ones, as importing prior content is very painful - there is some tooling for it, but it can still be pretty complex.

  • Pros

  • The interface is so user friendly and has a solid and highly customizable backend for all the needs.

  • I really appreciated the potentialities to adapt the CMS to many various environments and contexts.

  • Cons

  • It very occasionally has bugs, but the support is fantastic and very quick to listen to users and out things right

  • There is a lack of regression tests that validate when new features are developed, that everything is still working correctly. Sometimes some new developments break previous ones.
