What is a Headless CMS anyway?

Meet Scrivito, a headless CMS with a head…

Unlike a traditional content management system, headless or decoupled CMSs offer more development flexibility. They separate the frontend from the backend, maybe adding a static site generator like Gatsbe and thus freeing the developer from any constraints that legacy systems are saddled with.

But what good is a headless CMS without a head? That means, all of the headless CMSs on the market today are suffering from terrible usability for the editor - tools built from developers for developers. So until now, the developers’ joy was the editors’ pain.

Fortunately, Scrivito answers this question for you. Scrivito is a headless CMS that comes with a head you can configure any way you wish. Want your own custom site with full intuitive WYSIWYG in-place editing? No problem. You can even have multiple sites feeding off the same content. Scrivito makes multichannel content distribution across different sites as easy as can be. While still allowing editors to add content to your site with a WYSIWYG editor and our flexible widget layout components, all without messing up your corporate design. Simply put, your websites just run better with us.

Scrivito was built for the modern JAMstack web architectures

Built for your projects, your workflows, your goals, your team.

  • Technology

    Scrivito was built to be 100% maintenance free making your life easier by saving time and resources on the one problem all websites have – the servers. By getting rid of the servers, we got rid of all the typical problems associated with a website. Thanks to our headless, secure and serverless approach, we eliminate the need for constant patching and updating. Zero maintenance means zero issues.

  • Ease of Use

    ReactJS and JavaScript serverless technology means there is no more patching, updating or worrying about things running as they should. We take care of it all for you, delivering a 100% maintenance-free experience that your editors will love. And since Scrivito is just JavaScript and ReactJS, your developers can quickly and efficiently create, edit, and deploy sites faster than ever before making it one of the most cost effective solutions available.

  • Security

    Thanks to our JAMstack architecture with client-side JavaScript logic and pre-rendered HTML pages, we effectively deliver HTML and JavaScript files - so you don’t need any server. All the data comes from our secure backend, which our team is constantly monitoring, managing and developing to ensure your site is always safe, secure and available – we’re doing all the hard work for you, so you don’t have to.

  • Scalability

    Scrivito runs on the world-class infrastructure of Amazon Web Services (AWS). Your data is safe and secure – for high availability and data durability, your data is stored in at least three geographically distributed data centers. No other standard CMS can say that. Plus, with Scrivito your videos and images will be automatically delivered through our built-in Content Delivery Network (CDN), greatly reducing load times no matter where your visitors are located, resulting in lightning-fast, SEO-optimized sites.

  • Working Copies

    If you’ve used other CMS solutions, you most likely have encountered this common problem: If someone is already changing a portion of the site you need to modify as well, then you're stuck. You have to talk to your colleagues, asking them to revert their changes or wait until they've finished. With Scrivito's Working Copies, you and your team can all collaboratively edit the same website.

  • Support

    A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and we make sure you have the strongest links to support possible. Our documentation is second to none and coupled with our dedicated support team - we have you covered. Additionally, our chat line is available 24/7 with many of the same developers that actually wrote the code, so when you have questions, we have answers. How many other CMS’s out there can say that?
