Content Preview for your Contentful-Gatsby site with Next.js

Contentful is a really powerful CMS that we use on a number of projects at The Couch. However despite most of our clients having an intimate hate for Wordpress, they do have an intimate love for some of the common features. One of which isn’t something that works out of the box with Contentful: Preview.

How to organize your content and untangle your site’s navigation

Most of us use some type of map –– be it the Google or paper variety –– to navigate around unknown cities and places. Navigation helps us to get to where we need to go, and anyone who’s had their phone die on them in a new city knows how it feels to be completely lost.

Preview: Getting editors and developers on the same page

I’ve spent a lot of time chatting with NYC Contentful users about their experiences using our software, and I've been hearing a lot about the pitfalls that editors and developers experience when setting up previews. Editors and developers both interact with the same projects, but their experiences with those projects are completely different.

Help! My terminal speaks Contentful

I work at DoSomething dot org, which is the largest not-for-profit exclusively for young people and social change. Our digital platform activates millions of young people to create offline impact in every US area code and in 131 countries. We run social good campaigns (350+!) where our members can learn about a social issue, take some practical actions to help solve that issue and report back to us to verify their social action. Through these campaigns, DoSomething members have clothed half of America’s youth in homeless shelters. They’ve cleaned up 3.7 million cigarette butts. They’ve run the world’s largest youth-led sports equipment drive. And much more!
