Absolutely amazing. Hands down the best headless CMS out there.

The benefits are mostly laid out in the pros. To summarize though, I'd say that the biggest benefits are how insanely fast we can now build CMS based products at Blazity. The development time for both the initial prototypes and production versions is substantially shorter thanks to GraphCMS and it's wonderful API.

PROS

The ease of use, slick design, powerful features (and how fast the new ones are being added in) and the fact that everything simply is a GraphQL endpoint makes graphcms a real alternative for wordpress and other cms solutions. every single one of our projects that requires a CMS is making it's way to GraphCMS as of writing this. Godspeed!

CONS

The only thing that really bothered me with GraphCMS is that the customizability and extensibility of it is limited right now. Fortunately it's changing now and the webapp is getting open sourced!

A headless CMS that is more than a CMS

This has been a great experience coming off of other headless CMSs that were overcomplicated, too expensive, or lacking in developer friendly features. We converted our existing NextJS website to pull content from this CMS at build time.

PROS

The GraphQL API, slick schema designer, rich set of built in types, and fast UI all come together into a powerful system for content management.

CONS

Rich text editing and collaborative editing are lacking, simplistic or non-existent. Non-technical content writers will find it hard to use at first and lacking some of the content formatting tools they are used too.

Reason for choosing Hygraph

Price but also the GraphQL API which is great for developers.

Reasons for switching to Hygraph

Self hosting, deployment, and the feature set were complicated and not great.

A decent and user-friendly CMS that was just what we wanted.

We created a collection of data that could be associated with other information as parents, a kid, or, sometimes in strange circumstances, both. This was made simple by the GraphCMS connections. We don't need distinct CMSs like WordPress when we use the graph content management system. I may now handle all cms material with the graph content management system. GraphCMS is an excellent headless CMS. It assists me in developing concise GraphQL queries and testing them in a snap. That's far superior to my prior encounter with WordPress. If you are looking for a WordPress substitute, you should consider graph CMS. It is absolutely what everyone needs from a headless CMS. A recommended headless CMS tool.

PROS

It's quick and easy to use. I appreciate that the web facilities for maintaining the simulations are responsive (both in terms of responsiveness and browsing) and do not need a high learning curve in the beginning. I enjoy its UI, its clear object-based paradigm, and its flexibility to reuse material across several versions. The API workshop is also extremely handy, particularly with pre-populated data. We wish to provide blogs and other interactive material on our website, but we also need non-tech staff from the advertising and sales departments to be capable of changing it. And, because we didn't like to design our personal CMS, it is the ideal middle ground answer.

CONS

The following are the issues that I despise the most. Migration of data from one context to another is not permitted. Over the process of adding material, we discovered some flaws. It'll be chaos if we add material in two distinct windows in the browser. Physically reload the panel to see the updated content. There are no adequate video instructions. I don't enjoy the first task page: I think it’s very worthless for expert people — I guess, it makes a perfect reason to enroll new people, however as I become more acquainted with the system, I'd prefer more detailed info.

Scalable CMS, great for multi-language content, loved by our marketing team

PROS

My team needed a scalable headless CMS for our homepage, company blog, and all of our periodic content. Why we chose GraphCMS: rich-text visual editor, easy-to-use localization feature (our content is in 11 languages), scalability (several hundred thousand visitors per month) and the ability to write content into the CMS programmatically (awesome for importing content from other systems). Although our front-end design was ready before we chose GraphCMS, the integration was effortless and fast.

CONS

GraphCMS is built to handle structured data, so its added value is lower if you are handling freeform marketing websites.
