A headless CMS that’s as great for content authors as it is for developers.

Magnolia gives you the tools to empower content authors. (And make them happy! 😃)

  • Content apps provide standard form-based content editing (as you know from every headless CMS.)
  • Visual SPA Editor allows authors to work directly in the experience with a WYSIWYG "page builder". (But don't worry, it still delivers structured content over endpoints!)
  • Trees Intrinsic support for hierarchies of content. Everyone understands trees.
  • IUX (Integrated User Experience) allows you to surface content, information and controls from other systems directly into the Magnolia authoring UI. It gives authors the tools they need, right where and when they need it.
  • Connectors and deep integration capabilities, it's the foundation of Magnolia, and what makes it so good for taking a Best of Breed approach.

Power and Speed

In the crowded CMS landscape, we think that Magnolia is different. With its enterprise heritage, it has the power of the big DXP's like Sitecore and AEM. Yet, we've honed the developer experience to make a product that is fast and light, like you expect from a modern Headless CMS. We call it Light Development.

Magnolia is not an over-packed suite, it's modular. Just use the parts you need. And use our comprehensive extension points and connector packs to integrate to your other tools and systems.

For Developers and marketers

The Visual SPA Editor is a great collaboration system for devs and authors. It brings the components concept of CMS together with the component concept of Frontend Frameworks in a neat way. And it lets authors do more then just fill in disconnected forms, like most headless CMS.

Visual SPA Editor - WYSIWYG page editing for marketers

You can look at it as the developer putting 'handles' and 'knobs' on frontend components - so that marketers and content authors can move them around and tune them with custom content.

Once a developer provisions them, authors can go to town. And since the SPA is now way more flexible, developers don't need to constantly maintain it after launch. Authors and marketers can do that themselves now.
