Crafter CMS 3.1 Documentation

Crafter CMS is a modern content management platform for building digital experience applications including:

  • Single Page Applications (SPAs) using frameworks like React, Vue, and Angular

Crafter is a dynamic CMS based on Git and supports DevOps processes for code and content. It is also a hybrid-headless, API-first (GraphQL, REST, in-process) CMS, and that allows developers to use their favorite UI frameworks and tools.

Crafter CMS differentiates itself from existing CMSs with its architecture: microservices-based, serverless, elastic and planet-wide scalability. To learn more, see the Crafter CMS Architecture.
