Prismic is a Content Management System, a tool for editing online content

Also known as a headless CMS, an API CMS, a content platform, a disruptive content-as-a-service digital experience...basically we've built a tool that lets you choose your technology, framework, and language and then easily manage your content.

How Prismic works

A tool built to allow your content, design, and development teams to produce a finished product that they can all be proud of.

1. Type Modeling

Model your editor

Model custom types to match your desired design. Create reusable fields and custom components (we call them Slices...you'll hear us talk about them a lot) to enable dynamic layouts and build the editor experience that you want.

2. Fill content

Hand over to your content team to start creating content

Once you've managed the initial setup, you can hand the management over to your content team so that editors can start filling content while you're choosing the framework. With Prismic, creating beautiful content becomes simple enough that even non-technical employees can handle it. 

3. Build

Choose a framework and setup Prismic

You're free to use whichever framework you prefer. Gatsby, React, Next, Vue...you can use whatever you think is best for your project, your skills, and your needs.

Choose a framework
// Example templating with Node.js (with pug)
block body
  body
    div
      // Render a title field
      h1 !{PrismicDOM.RichText.asText(doc.title)}
      // Render an image
      img(src=doc.image.url)
      // Render a paragraph
      != PrismicDOM.RichText.asHtml(doc.article)
4.Query

Query content and place it in your components

Prismic uses a standard RESTful API as well as GraphQL to query and retrieve your content as a JSON response. Every Prismic repository provides an API browser that allows you to test your queries and see the results

5. Deploy

Deploy on Zeit Now, Netlify, Heroku or your favorite hosting platform

We take care of hosting and scaling the publishing tools. All you have to do is host the website, but you can choose whichever hosting platform you prefer.

Why we think Prismic is good for developers 

API to fetch content

Unlike a traditional CMS, an API-based approach is much simpler and more secure. This includes options for REST, GraphQL, and SDKs that help our users to make the most of Prismic.

No maintenance or server setup

We offer a high-level SLAs, scalability, and a global CDN. We'll make sure that everything is running smoothly in the background so that you can focus on your projects.

A growing ecosystem

Built by developers for developers - we actively engage with the community. Enjoy content that is created specifically for our community and join our Slack to discuss your Prismic projects.

How to choose a tech stack for your website

It's not an easy decision to make, so we've made some videos to help you choose everything from your framework to your CMS.
