How Prismic works, in 4 steps

A new way of building

1

Say hello to Slices

In Prismic, every component of a web page (what we call a Slice) is a reusable building block in our Page Builder, instead of a static part of a page.

2

Build components locally with Slice Machine

Slice Machine, Prismic’s development tool, is where you build your Slices, versioning them as you go.

3

Connect your Slices to Prismic to source the content

As you build your components, Slice Machine will automatically define data models for your Slices. These data models allow content created in Prismic to connect seamlessly with your components via our API.

4

Ship your Slices to a custom page builder

Once ready and tested, you can ship Slices for your content team to use in a custom page builder. Now they can populate content independently in that cloud-based interface, ready for the next API call.

Here’s why you’ll love Prismic

Prismic takes the pain out of web development and lets you focus on building great websites.

It’s headless

The original headless technology, Prismic integrates with all the major Jamstack frameworks. Just pick your favorite stack combo and go to work. And if Next and Nuxt are your thing, you’re in for a fun ride.

Slices are a game changer

With Slices, devs can finally give marketers the freedom and independence they always wanted. They can now build endless custom pages without breaking the design, going off-brand, or waiting for busy developers.

Our Software Engineers ship 10-15 Slices every quarter. Our content team's hunger for more Slices is growing, which is great, because we create better user experiences.

Prismic is so developer friendly, the bigger the project gets, the less you need to do.

There are many headless solutions out there. You will need to spend weeks learning how the platform works. That was not my experience with Prismic.

Prismic allows me to create a really powerful page builder for my clients and makes the process extremely productive with Slice Machine. Prismic blows all competitors out of the water with Slice Machine alone, in my opinion.

Features that work for you

We designed Prismic to take care of the details and get the obstacles out of your way while you focus on the real work.

  • Hosted

    The Prismic team maintains both the software and infrastructure so you can start working on your projects immediately.

  • Fast API, simple to use

    Our API is backed by a CDN, sending content to your users in milliseconds no matter where they are in the world. It’s also easy to use through our TypeScript client’s intuitive interface.

  • Built-in image optimization

    Images are compressed and optimized on-the-fly using Prismic’s built-in imgix integration so you can save time when building your website or improving performance and SEO.

  • TypeScript-first

    We’ve designed all our SDKs for TypeScript, including accurate types, in-editor documentation via TSDoc, and code completion with IntelliSense. And even if you’re using JavaScript, you’ll still get all of these benefits.

  • Small and efficient SDKs

    All Prismic’s SDKs are fully tested and well maintained. They are performant and small: bundled with modern tools so you have more kilobytes for what matters the most - your website code.
