Contentful App Framework

Customize your tech stack with extensible solutions

Extend the capabilities of your content platform to create bespoke solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of each team within an organization. With Contentful’s market-leading App Framework, you can customize workflows to minimize manual steps and put your content in context of your business.

Don’t let your CMS dictate the way you work

The App Framework easily connects your favorite tools and frameworks to a unified content platform.

Cut through content silos with Contentful

You’re probably already managing a portfolio of tools on top of your CMS that need access to content for experimentation, asset management, ecommerce and more. 

Too often, this leads to duplicate content, complicated workflows and unstable workarounds. With the App Framework, developers can optimize how editors work with Contentful while optimizing workflows with tools that integrate directly into the content platform.

The content platform that grows with your business

Get more out of your tech investments while increasing efficiencies when you connect content to backend systems.


Integrate seamlessly

Connect content between existing and future systems on a single content platform, with one set of APIs and one unified system of record. This includes third party cloud services, backend workflows and more.

Extend core functionalities

Our API-first approach makes it easy to create and replicate apps across your organization, saving resources normally wasted on single-use, maintenance-heavy integrations.

Empower content creators

Make context-switching between services and workflows a thing of the past. Deliver more consistent content and brand experiences by incorporating all apps in one editorial UI — a single authoring hub for the enterprise.

Apps that integrate with any service

Apps empower creators to build efficient workflows and adapt to the needs of your business. Contentful offers built-in apps, like Compose and Launch, to empower creators and orchestrators with the tools to deliver content faster. Or, integrate with the cloud services you already use with Contentful marketplace apps.
