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

Headless CMS for Meteor

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

Step #1 - Fetching content from the headless CMS

To retrieve the data from Hygraph's GraphQL API you can use the fetch function to send a POST request. The request includes a JSON body containing the GraphQL query. This method is asynchronous and returns the JSON response once the data is received.

Additionally, on the client side, this method is called using, and the result is stored in a Session variable (graphqlData). This approach allows the fetched data to be reactively used across the client-side of the Meteor application.

import { Meteor } from 'meteor/meteor';'fetchGraphqlData', (error, result) => {
if (error) {
console.error('Error fetching GraphQL data:', error);
} else {
async fetchGraphqlData() {
const response = await fetch('https://api-<region><some hash>/master', {
method: 'POST',
headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' },
body: JSON.stringify({ query: '{ yourQuery { field1 field2 } }' }),
return await response.json();

Step #2 - Set up a template

To display the data you would use the templates in Meteor. MeteorJS templates are a core feature for building dynamic, reactive user interfaces. Written in HTML with the <template> tag, they automatically update to reflect changes in data, thanks to Meteor's reactive data system.

You can enhance these templates with JavaScript, adding helpers for data and logic, and event handlers for user interactions. Their ability to be nested and dynamically rendered offers great flexibility, allowing you to create complex interfaces with reusable components.

<template name="displayData">
{{#if Template.subscriptionsReady}}
{{#with graphqlData}}

Step #3 - Import the template and display the content

Finally, you can integrate the fetched GraphQL data into a MeteorJS template. In this example, a Meteor template named PostList is defined, and it utilizes the posts helper function to access the data fetched from the GraphQL API.

This data is then iteratively displayed using the built-in #each directive of Blaze, Meteor's front-end rendering library. Each post's title and content are rendered within the template.

import { Template } from 'meteor/templating';
import './displayData.html';
graphqlData() {
return Session.get('graphqlData');

Why Hygraph

Choosing Hygraph for your Meteor project

Using a GraphQL-native headless CMS such as Hygraph with a MeteorJS app provides clear advantages for both developers and content editors. Developers benefit from GraphQL's efficient data queries, which mesh well with MeteorJS's reactive data handling, resulting in enhanced app performance.

For content editors, the headless CMS offers an intuitive interface for straightforward content management. This combination supports a decoupled architecture, allowing for independent content updates and streamlined frontend development, leading to faster content delivery and a more agile workflow.
