Contentful Monthly: read about a platform to share content models, new features and how to start low-maintenance microblogging in February's developer newsletter.
I’m a big believer in the KISS principle in web development. KISS is an acronym for the phrase “keep it simple, stupid” — and while I don’t advocate for calling anyone “stupid” 🙈 — I’m definitely an advocate for keeping things very simple when learning to work with new technology. So, with this being my first-ever app built using Contentful (🎉), I wanted to make sure I focused my efforts on learning this single technology, rather than getting bogged down with other front-end frameworks and technologies.
We caught up with Salma, our newest member of Contentful’s DevRel team to learn what led her to developer relations and how she accidentally increased engagement in Contentful Community Slack by 200% on her first day at Contentful.
2020 felt long for most of us, but we made it! The Contentful team and I wish you all a happy and successful New Year 2021! I hope that you all had some time to rest, reflect and recharge.
Contentful introduces added security to the App Framework by introducing Request Verification which secures data integrity between your frontend application and backends.
Wherever you are, I hope you're enjoying these last few days of 2020. But before we start making New Year's resolutions, let's look back at some exciting things from the Contentful community!
We continuously improve our GraphQL API, and the querying of localized and deeply nested content just got more powerful. In case you're not following our changelog or haven’t subscribed to our developer newsletter, I want to share the latest GraphQL additions in this post.
Turning a User-Interface Extension (UIE) into an app doesn’t require many code changes, but it does give you access to new, powerful features.
Sometimes URL slugs need to be changed — maybe someone mistyped a word, or information gets updated. Changing the URL is easy, but what about all those links on social channels and other websites that you can’t update? Redirect the original URL.
