This is a real API request. Try it! Copy this line and run it in your terminal.
While editors work on content in the web interface, the API returns it as a JSON document.
Contentful helps managing and distributing structured content. Maybe you'd like to check the docs?

This is how content comes into your projects

The content is delivered as JSON — free of presentation, and ready to go anywhere.
It’s two products: one for developers, one for editors.
Contentful — How it Works — Web App
Editors create content in a web app
Contentful — How it Works — JSON Contentful — How it Works — JSON
Contentful — How it Works — Devices Contentful — How it Works — Devices Illustration
Your app requests the content, gets the JSON, and shows it at its best.

Editors be editing

Contentful comes with a web interface – an environment in which non-technical, content-focused users can work, making sure that the content looks and reads great.

We speak your language

We've built SDKs for the most popular languages, so you don't have to deal with the low-level API directly.
