This article introduces Contentful (a cloud-hosted, headless, Content Management System (CMS)) and the graph database Neo4j. I have written a utility that allows data stored in Contentful to be imported into a Neo4j graph database. I’ll leave detailed explanations of what this can do until after I have explained the two systems. There are probably very few people who are familiar with both of these products, so I will start with an introduction to each.
At Contentful, we’re currently working hard on our new GraphQL API, which is already available in alpha phase. GraphQL offers many benefits the average GraphQL API user can directly take advantage of. But with lots of users and flexibility, support for GraphQL is trickier but don't worry–this article will cover everything in detail.
I've previously shown the way to use the Contentful.CodeFirst package to let your c# classes act as the basis of your content model in Contentful in another article. But what happens if your content model already exists and you want to create corresponding, strongly-typed C# models? That's a lot of boilerplate code to write—today I'm happy to release a new tool that helps you do just that.
