Hello Product Hunt! And thanks a lot for the hunt @notrab! About a year ago, our product journey started here on Product Hunt. And ever since, we've seen massive traction for GraphQL and headless content management. We were able to gain our first happy customers quickly and have since been able to build an active community of thousands of developers all over the world! About six months ago, we decided to start rebuilding our product from scratch to quickly incorporate the learnings we had from the first version. With the new product, there are improved, generated GraphQL APIs, a new and blazing fast content management interface, staging support for multiple environments with automatic merging and much more. More importantly we’ve reduced technical debt and created a solid foundation to deliver twice as many new features in the coming months! Today, we are happy to announce that we left beta - the new GraphCMS is finally here! Also, we are excited to announce that we closed a $1M seed round with Berlin based VC Paua Ventures. Read the full announcement here: https://graphcms.com/blog/new-graphcms-ready-for-launch Product hunters, we have a special deal for you! Use the coupon code 'producthunt' to get a 50% discount for three months. The coupon code can be redeemed when switching to a paid plan in the web app (this offer is valid for two weeks). Thanks again! Michael Lukaszczyk Co-Founder of GraphCMS

@m_lukaszczyk Hi Michael, wonderful project. I’ve read some months ago your article about open sourcing GraphCMS. Is still on your roadmap?
Michael Lukaszczyk

Thanks a lot @adileobarone! So our initial plan was and still is, to open source the content management interface as soon as it matures a little after our launch, so stay tuned!

I've been following GraphCMS since it launched and today marks an incredible milestone. I had the great pleasure meeting some of the GraphCMS team in Berlin @ GraphQL Europe and they are a wonderful, talented bunch of developers that deserve #1 spot on PH today 😍

Thanks a lot Jamie 🙏

Wow this looks supremely cool, something like https://contentful.com but a GraphQL version which will definitely give me more of a push to delve deeper into GraphQL and the react eco system in general! :)

Thanks @darkpsy, GraphCMS is definitely a great start to learn GraphQL!

@m_lukaszczyk and the rest of the GraphCMS team congratulations to new GraphCMS! I a happy to be able to support you as a Business Angel.
Paweł Mikołajczuk
Hey, does it supports IPTC standars for news (ninjs, newsmlg2)?
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
Hey @pawel_mikolajczuk I don't have a good knowledge of those standards but it seems that this is a particular JSON structure standard, do I get this right? With GraphCMS, the shape of your content can be fully customized so that you will most likely be able to mimic those standards with the GraphQL content API you are building with GraphCMS!
Federico Wengi
I have been following the team of Graph CMS for the last 8 months. What a journey, happy to be part of it. I can only recommend Michael and all the guys in Giessen. Great team!
Cristian Dan
Nice! Have you tought about open sourcing GraphCMS?
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
Hey @cristiandan, while we won't open source the full stack for now, we will open source the new content management interface in the near future! This will allow you to brand and adapt the interface to your needs. For example, if you need a special kind of editor.
Bjoern Mueller
Great passion of the team to bring GraphQL to the masses, looking forward to the journey ahead!

How about to give ability to upload anything I want for example html css and js to simply host a webpage prepared earlier?
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
Hey @vladkorobov, can you please elaborate? Do you want to upload html, css, js files into GraphCMS?
Vlad Korobov
@m_lukaszczyk yes, if I chose Headless CMS to store my data, let me store any kind of it 😜
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
You're actually right. CSS and JS works though. Curious why the CDN provider blocks this. This sounds like a bug to me and I'll check what's going on!
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
So it turns out as a bug at the CDN provider @vladkorobov. This will be taken care of!
Vlad Korobov
@m_lukaszczyk Important - relative paths in html suppose to work, so if you solve the problem fo saving relative paths to js, css, and images in html somehow that would be killer feature for me
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
@vladkorobov can you please reach out via our intercom so we can discuss this further?

Love the idea but it's very buggy right now. I signed up, added some models and wanted to add new content but I was randomly redirected or got a weird error. Then after a while it worked fine. After inserting some items it started doing that again. Added my other account as a contributor. The signup/login and email verification process is painful.. and after I finally confirmed my account I had to login for the third time. After doing that I didn't see any projects I was invited to, so I logged out, logged back in and I saw a notification that I can accept the invitation. After accepting I saw the project but whenever I click on it I get logged out and redirected back to the login page. Everything worked fine otherwise but was a bit annoyed after that honestly as I'm at the point where I can't invite anyone else to contribute to the project.

Hey @blazbreznik, sorry to hear that! We found some issues today that we are already working on. Can you reach out via intercom for better troubleshooting? Also we activated email verification on auth to allow account merging if you want to log in with multiple providers (email/pw auth + github for example). While it might sound unintuitive to do so, a lot of users were requesting this. And without proper email validation, this would have been a security risk.

What are my options if you guys go out of business or your pricing model changes?
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
Hey @jakewesorick, if you buy a subscription, you will be able to remain on this exact plan for as long as you want to. Changes in pricing are pretty common in SaaS, but the actual change should be justified by adding more value to the product. If we go down, then open sourcing the full stack would be one option.
Steve Tucker
Interesting product. What is the pricing model?
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
Hey @steve_tucker, you can use GraphCMS for small projects for free! Did you see our pricing page? https://graphcms.com/pricing
Steve Tucker
@m_lukaszczyk I have now! Thanks for the clarification, Michael!

David Torres
@m_lukaszczyk don't just like it, I love it, and love how you guys have ready made projects, all I had to do was change the blog theme :)
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
Great to hear @dabiddo! Expect more and even better templates and starters in the near future!
Matic Zavadlal
I love the simplicity of GraphCMS, and it's unparalleled UI experience. I wouldn't say it's suitable for every need, but am entirely sure that it does the thing that it offers best-that is being a perfect content management solution for my applications.
Michael Lukaszczyk
Maker
Thanks for the kind words @maticzavadlal!

Thanks a lot @jazibsawar, join our slack if you have any questions!

A graphcms code example was what got me into GraphQL initially, I have loved to use their product for some side projects, it really gives a nice GUI for non-technical data stakeholders to manage/edit/post. I was also lucky to meet @m_lukaszcyk @hmeissner and part of the team at GraphQL-Europe recently! Hope to see you next time on a 🛳️guys!

It was a pleasure meeting you @schpn! Lets collaborate on another project soon!

@m_lukaszczyk Are you offering a subscription API currently? Didn't come up in the docs search. Thx
Michael Lukaszczyk

Hey @sbr464, currently we don't support this but we might in the future! What would be your use case?
