An HTTP API provided ready to use with full auto-generated documentation.
Example content to help you understand how all works. This can be removed all in one click.
Many consumers in different technologies can show you how easy is to build a Contenta project.
A community of experts is ready to guide with Contenta and solve common challenges together.
Contenta is the community driven API distribution for Drupal 8.
It provides a standard platform that is API ready along with demo content and example front-end applications. Contenta intends to ease the pain of using, or simply trying, decoupled Drupal.
There are other options in for decoupled CMS. We believe that Contenta CMS provides advantages over its alternatives.
But this is not just us saying this! Read an independent comparison between Contenta CMS and other alternatives.
The quick installation is intended for local development only. For this to work you will need to have composer installed in your local machine. See get composer for more details. Also, make sure that the sqlite-extension is installed (sudo apt-get install php-sqlite3 in debian/ubuntu).
php -r "readfile('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/contentacms/contenta_jsonapi/8.x-1.x/installer.sh');" > contentacms.sh chmod a+x contentacms.sh ./contentacms.sh
composer create-project contentacms/contenta-jsonapi-project MYPROJECT --stability dev --no-interaction
An integral part of Contenta is to provide an out of the box content model and demo content ready for you to start working with it. The demo chosen by the community is a recipe magazine.
With this in mind, every demo consumer will implement this recipe magazine site with the goal in mind to compare the different implementations.
Choosing your own front-end technology is one of common reasons to choose a decoupled approach. In a decoupled architecture you can also have multiple front-ends at the same time. Contenta gives you examples on how to build a consumer application in different technologies.
We will implement the same wireframes as the Out of the Box Initiative, so all the demo applications can be compared. Even though all applications will have the same structure, each one will choose their look and feel. Angular may use material design, elm may use bootstrap, etc.
