Schema Builder

Map out content structure and create models using the intuative Schema Builder. With several field options like text, assets, language, maps, and even connect content models to share information and scale faster.

  • Hygraph is extremely easy to use once you understand how to work with content models and the graphQL-based API playground. Making edits to the schema, sending and receiving API requests, and managing content works fairly fast.

  • Headless-content management, and it solves that problem greatly. Hygraph is the ideal way to fetch content and they make it very easy to build your schema, add your content, and fetch it in your site.

  • ...we’ve found the platform to be quite flexible. Being able to not only specify relationships between content, but also the way it relates to other parts of the schema (one-to-one, one-to-many, etc.), makes for great control over the schema. We’ve internally started using it for prototypes that go beyond the scope of a simple CMS because of this flexibility.

Reference Type

References are a powerful Field Type found within the Schema Builder that link different content models together. Users can connect content in One- or Two-Way References and by Union Types helping to structure information and de-clutter the project.

  • Easy to set up and get started with. Versatile content modeling with flexible model relations and on-fly changes without the need or worry about API, GraphQL obviously, and a cherry on top - included CDN with image transformation. Oh wait, there are two cherries on top, Netlify integration being the other.


Field Validations

Dictate what field within the content model is required, down to how a particular field should be formatted. This guarantees that the most important inputs are never forgotten or entered incorrectly.

  • High flexibility in creating your content model

  • The support team is top notch. Everyone at Hygraph has been excellent and exceptionally helpful while we built out our data model and integrations. The team is incredibly responsive and receptive to new features ideas. 10/10.

  • Hygraph is just so easy to use. Creating new data models and populating them for use on the front end is intuitive and the interface is very clean. The product is designed in a way that it's obvious they were thinking about their users.

  • Hygraph is a way for us to allow non-engineers at our company to create content for our marketing website. Once the engineers define the data model within GraphCMS, other employees at our company can easily add the content through their UI, and once published, our build system automatically rebuilds the website with the new content.
