$10M to Unify the Content Layer
We’ve raised a Series A investment of $10M to unify the Content Layer
We’ve done a complete overhaul of our permission system and created our new granular permission system. This approach enables teams to model their organizational structures and business logic, and makes it possible to restrict visibility and access as required. Teams are now able to create custom roles for internal and external users, and tokens, to give more control over who has access to what content and their ability to interact with that content. Using custom roles and permissions, teams’ GraphCMS projects can be even more flexible and a broader range of use cases are now possible.
We’ve made several big improvements to the Rich Text Editor so that Content Editors can continue to quickly create engaging content. Teams that wish to import existing HTML can now do that using our HTML-to-Rich Text Converter. The converter is open-sourced and published on our Github and to npm for users to add to their GraphCMS projects.
We have also released Copy and Paste Support from other tools including Google Docs, Medium, and Confluence. Content Editors will now be able to create content in an external tool and copy and paste the content into the GraphCMS Rich Text Editor while still maintaining the formatting. Additionally, we have added Soft Break Support (Shift + Enter), Full-screen mode for our Rich Text Editor, and Code block handling improvements.
After several iterations, enhancements, and modifications based on user feedback, we’ve revamped our documentation to have a much cleaner look, making it easier to find the right references faster.
We’re working to build Project starters that offer an end-to-end experience of project creation. Now with our starters, teams see the full power of GraphCMS using existing content and create an entire website using the starter. Our Blog, Commerce Shop, and Marketing Website Starters now have links to a live demo, a Github repo, and a guide on how to deploy your own iteration of the starter. These starters are great for POCs, onboarding to GraphCMS, or trying out new approaches in a separate project from that in production.
We’re looking to add more of these in the future so if there is a specific use case you’d like to see featured, let us know in our Community Slack. We’d also be keen to collaborate with you in creating new templates and starters, so get in touch!
To help make sure new users get up and running smoothly with GraphCMS, we’ve added several Getting Started with GraphCMS videos to our UI for new users. It will help them understand the basics of working with GraphCMS without leaving the UI. You can check out the entire playlist of our “How to GraphCMS” videos on Youtube.
If you find the new guided videos helpful or would like more of them let us know in our #feedback channel in our Community Slack.
We’ve released some exciting new Jamstack content this month! We took a closer look at how Dynamic content can work seamlessly with the Jamstack and what considerations teams should make when creating modern experiences with the Jamstack. We’ve also shared a comprehensive guide on choosing the best tooling for your use case with 28 different tools that work well with the Jamstack.
