Example apps

Example PHP apps are the best way to start building with Contentful. They show you how to start a project based on example spaces.

The PHP example app

The PHP example app teaches the very basics of how to work with Contentful:

  • consume content from the Contentful Delivery and Preview APIs
  • model content
  • edit content through the Contentful web app

The app demonstrates how decoupling content from its presentation enables greater flexibility and facilitates shipping higher quality software more quickly.
