Here's a quick summary of everything we released in Q1 2024.

Headless CMS for Astro

Hygraph is the ideal Headless CMS for Astro websites and applications. Read further to learn how our API-first CMS allows you to add components to your Astro apps in minutes and enable your website's content to be managed from a powerful CMS.

Step #1 - Construct your query and fetch the data from Hygraph

To integrate a headless CMS with an Astro website or application, start by constructing your query like the example on the right and store this as a variable.

Afterwards use the fetch() function to call the API and fetch data from Hygraph's GraphQL API.

interface Post {
title: string;
const query = {
method: "POST",
headers: { "Content-Type": "application/json" },
body: JSON.stringify({
query: `
blogPosts {
image {
const response = await fetch(YOUR_HYGRAPH_ENDPOINT, query);
const json = await response.json();
const posts: Post[] =;

Step #2 - Work with data within Astro files

Fetching data from Hygraph and then using it in Astro files is a straightforward process. Hygraph's GraphQL API allows for efficient data retrieval, and Astro's file system is designed for easy integration. 

By combining the two, you can seamlessly incorporate dynamic content from Hygraph into your Astro website, enabling you to create dynamic and engaging web experiences with minimal complexity.
