As companies add more specialized processes to their editorial stacks, they face the challenge of how to build and support editorial workflow. Our latest feature, open-source field editors, is here to help. It’s now possible to fork existing extensions or create your own extensions based on existing Contentful components' source, rather than starting from scratch. Developers have greater adaptability with a fraction of the work, whilst editors are empowered and have more time to create new and exciting content.
Watch this tutorial from Contentful Developer Evangelist Shy Ruparel and Contentful Staff Engineer Aleksandr Suevalov as they guide you through how to build an extension using these open-source components.
