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

Headless CMS for Qwik

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

Step #1 - Construct your query and fetch the content from the headless CMS

To fetch the content from the headless CMS you can use Qwik's useResource$ for managing asynchronous operations, such as fetching data. The fetch request is made to the Hygraph's GraphQL endpoint, using the POST method, and includes headers for content type and authorization.

The authorization header carries a bearer token for secure access which you can retrieve in your Hygraph project settings. The body of the request contains the GraphQL query as a JSON string.

import { component$, useResource$ } from '';
export const fetchData = component$(() => {
const resource = useResource$(() => {
return fetch('https://api-<region><some hash>/master', {
method: 'POST',
headers: {
'Content-Type': 'application/json',
'Authorization': 'Bearer YOUR_HYGRAPH_TOKEN' // Add your token here
body: JSON.stringify({
.then(response => response.json())
.catch(error => console.error('Error fetching data:', error));
return resource;

Step #2 - Displaying content in Qwik

One the content is fetched you can use it in a Qwik component. This component utilizes the fetchData function defined earlier to obtain resources. The useResource$ hook manages the asynchronous fetching process.

This approach provides a responsive and user-friendly way to handle and display content fetched from a GraphQL API in a Qwik application.

import { component$ } from '';
export default component$((props) => {
const { data } = props;
return (
{data && => (
<div key={}>

Why Hygraph

Choosing Hygraph for your Qwik project

Using a GraphQL-native headless CMS such as Hygraph with a Qwik application benefits both developers and content editors. Developers enjoy a streamlined workflow, as GraphQL allows precise data fetching, reducing unnecessary data retrieval and boosting performance. This aligns well with Qwik's efficient handling of dynamic data.

Content editors, on the other hand, get an intuitive interface for managing content, free from concerns about the app's structure or performance. This separation enables editors to focus solely on content, while real-time updates via GraphQL facilitate a seamless, collaborative workflow between the editorial and development teams. The result is a more efficient content management process and a better end-user experience.
