Case Study: GraphCMS and DMarket
Powering in-game trading with a Headless CMS for gaming marketplaces, enhanced with AI and Blockchain.
Distributing founders resources globally with GraphCMS - a safety net for agile teams who move fast but don’t want to break things
What AWS did for Dev Ops – GraphCMS is doing for app content management.
Startups.com is the world's largest startup platform. It helps over one million startup companies find customers, funding, mentors, and world-class education. The Ohio-based platform consists of six products: Startups.com, Clarity, Fundable, Launchrock, Bizplan, and Zirtual.
GraphCMS powers significant portions of the periodic content across Startups’ digital properties: news articles, interviews with founders, investors and expert advice. The team of Startups.com uses schema stitching to connect the GraphCMS API with the API of its own internal GraphQL server.
Schema stitching is the process of creating a single GraphQL schema from multiple underlying GraphQL APIs. It enables developers to query all of the data as part of one single schema, and get everything they need in one request.
Startups.com wanted to move away from using a handful of content management systems – several interconnected Wordpress instances – to a single platform. The headless system had to support GraphQL and React natively narrowing down the choice significantly.
“We are not in the business of building and maintaining CMSs but wanted a flexible system that can grow with us while we focus on our own product development.” – Aaron Fuleki, Senior Software Engineer at Startups.com.
