Terminology

So you’re new at Storyblok and want to know all our secrets? You’ve come to the right place.

  • What is Storyblok?
    Storyblok is a headless CMS. We removed the front-end component (the head) leaving our content delivery RESTful API. While most Content Management Systems force you into developing your website in a specific way, Storyblok gives developers the freedom to build using their favorite technologies and integrate with their existing tools. Moreover, there is no need to take care of CMS installation or database setup.

  • What is a Space?
    A space is a content repository, and each space has its own components. Think of it as a place to keep all the content related to one project.

  • What is a Folder?
    A folder is a collection of stories. Using folders, you can create a simple structure for your content. Foe example, a multi-language news website.

  • What is a Story?
    A story is a collection of instances of components filled with information by the content creator. You can fetch a story directly by its slug.

  • What is a Component?
    Also known as content blocks, a component is a standalone entity that is meaningful on its own. While components can be nested in each other, they remain independent.

  • What is a Field Type?
    One field type is the smallest part in the storyblok terminology…

  • What is a Datasource?
    One data source is simply a collection of key-value pairs (KVP). One specific datasource-entry is a set of two linked data items: a key, which is a unique identifier.

  • What is a Collaborator?
    A collaborator is a person who is explicitly a member of your project. Collaborators can own their own spaces, and can have their roles and permissions defined.
