The best way to enable content authoring with your JS framework

Now that you’ve built that beautiful application in Angular, Aurelia, Ember, React - or the next big JavaScript framework - how do make your content authors happy?  Easy:  Think Headless.

Never let a CMS dictate your presentation tier options.  The field is too crowded and is changing too rapidly for pre-ordained “templates” to suffice.  Instead, crank out that prototype in your desired framework(s) and

  • utilise REST calls to query content
    • a simple mockup will do
  • returning JSON for each node

Then go back and splice in actual CMS REST calls after-the-fact.  Or better yet, checkout their SDK.

Any API first, or headless, content management system worth its salt will dovetail nicely into such a process.  You get to spin up your MVP quickly, and look like a hero when authors can revise their items with ease.
