Netlify app

Static sites makes it easy to build fast, powerful and secure websites and to make content updates to your site even easier, we’ve built a Netlify app, connecting your content in Contentful with Netlify’s static site building functionality. By giving content writers an easier, more transparent process for editing content, they can adapt content faster while retaining control of what’s published on static sites.

The Contentful web app makes it possible to configure make content changes without having to navigate between systems and gives full oversight from previewing to deploying the changes.

Within the Contentful web app, editors can trigger Netlify builds with a simple click in the sidebar and shows the build status in real-time to avoid previewing outdated sites. Additionally, editors can track the progress and the last changes made from within the web app.

Frontify app

Leveraging brand style guides, pattern libraries and design systems is essential for creating a unified brand across all digital touchpoints. With the Frontify app, you can simplify your workflow by accessing your brand assets from within the Contentful web app, ensuring all your content is brand compliant. contentful-frontify

By directly linking your assets in Frontify to your Contentful entries, content editors can easily browse, preview and select assets that live in Frontify.

Image Focal Point app

The Image Focal Point app allows you to set a focal point for an image, which you can use to crop assets and optimize them for different devices and screen sizes, such as desktop, mobile and tablet. Learn more.

Build a better editor experience with extensions

Deploying structured content depends on many specialized tools, but working between interfaces and tracking integrations can slow everyone down — especially if editors already swimming in a sea of open tabs.

New Contentful UI extensions allow you to customize the editorial experience and add third-party integrations to your workspace.

Dialogue extensions help users access all their preferred tools within a single interface. See how. bynder demo 40

Sidebar extensions can be used to provide sensitive language check, a preview tool, and more. Read more. screenshot-2-2

Entry extensions help you deliver a bespoke editing experience for each role. Learn how. entry-extension-demo

Gatsby preview

Preview content before publishing an entry. We have released an instant preview extension that takes advantage of the Gatsby preview feature to rebuild pages in real-time. This makes it easy for editorial teams working with Gatsby-powered websites to preview their content in context, without triggering a new build process. The extension lives in a sidebar and enables authors to choose between automatic and manual rebuilds. Please note that this extension requires a premium version of the Gatsby framework that can be purchased here. You can install the extension in your space from the marketplace page.
