Powerful content management systems — Sanity vs Contentful vs Strapi | Abhi’s Blogs
Introduction to the content management system
Nowadays, Websites are switching from no-code website builders (WordPress, Wix etc) to the latest technology stacks like React.js, Next.js, Django, Flask etc. WordPress takes too much time to load pages.
There are 2 types of possible data on the website
Let’s suppose, a blog website holds static data which is not gonna change frequently. We can use a content management system to manage those data without appending static content in the code repository. That’s why CMS (Content management system) came into the picture.
Sanity is a content management solution for a website that holds some static data in an entire website like websites of small and individual businesses, portfolio websites etc.
Pros of sanity
- Sanity is a very good option to integrate with react app
- Easy to setup and integrate
- Sanity studio works in localhost as well as production level
- Useful for client websites and full fill their requirements
- The clean and beautiful user interface of sanity studio
Cons of sanity
Contentful is the best solution for static websites like my blog website. I like contentful because of its simplicity and the relationship between various collections models.
Pros of Contentful
- Simplicity and clean user interface
- Easy to connect SDK (Software development kit) and client configuration
- Works on only contentful platform (Means you have to manage content on their web app)
- GraphQL API support

Cons of Contentful
Strapi is the best content management system for API development. Strapi is easy to use and set up and more time-consuming while working with a data model for backend development. Strapi is built for API development purposes
Pros of StrapiCons of Strapi
We can’t compare all cms with each other. All content management systems had been made for some special purpose to solve some problems in real-world applications. Strapi is built for API development. Sanity is for website content management and Contentful is (Good for blog applications) for both but only accessible from its web app.
I also use Contentful CMS for my blog website. Do check it out at blogs.abhidadhaniya.com
