What is Storyblok
Storyblok is a Headless Content Management System that provides developers with all the flexibility they need to build reliable and fast websites whilst giving content creators with no coding skills the ability to edit content independently of the developer. Thanks to the headless approach your content can not only be used for one website, which is the case if you use a monolithic CMS like WordPress. Storyblok empowers you to use your content on iOS and Android apps, as well as any other platform of choice (IoT, smartwatch, AR/VR) through Application Programming Interfaces (“APIs”).
Storyblok provides the infrastructure to create and manage content utilizing our frontend app or management API. It is not coupled to one specific presentation layer, such as websites. Modern web frameworks are built out of components. Storyblok provides the right content structure to fill those components with data using a nestable data structure. It is headless, which means it can serve your content in a presentation-agnostic way. It provides REST APIs to deliver content to any channel such as static and dynamic websites, mobile apps, e-commerce, showrooms or any digital platform you can think of.
How it works
Your developers can now focus on your project: websites, e-commerce, mobile apps, digital showrooms and even your next big thing.
Define your Models: Define the schema of your content. This includes creating a content type, components and adding the right fields such as
imageor even custom field types.
Create your content: Once the required content types and components are ready, any user can add content by filling up your fields in our editor.
Use your content: The content, once saved and published, can be loaded on your website, mobile app, or any other channel using our Content Delivery API. The same content can be reused for any platform.
The key concepts behind Storyblok are inspired by the BEM methodology. One way this manifests itself is through the relationship between developer and editor.
