Scrivito is a decoupled CMS, which means you can either use it as a headless content management system and develop your application to manage and retrieve information via a rich set of APIs or use the “head” we created and include in every Scrivito CMS.
We call this head an “Example App” because it’s a showpiece regarding what can be achieved using Scrivito. Don’t get confused by the name. It’s a web application that was built with Scrivito and is thus equipped with highly intuitive and convenient content editing tools plus a selection of page types and widgets enabling editors to create and change the content in place, and developers to quickly grasp the underlying principles.
For a generic website, the Example App has all the widgets you need, and you will want only to change how the templates look, and then directly start adding your content.
As soon as you log in to Scrivito to edit your new website, you can start working on the example pages we provide, create new pages, and remove unwanted ones. You can set up a free 30-day trial and experiment at your will. Below, you can see the list of widgets the Example App currently includes.
The Example App is not only an easy to use and powerful WYSIWYG content editor. Additionally, you can, for example, assign user roles to collaborators to control publishing, or integrate the app with any 3rd-party service you wish. Here’s what you will most probably benefit from in your organization:
The Scrivito Example App is already very well equipped, but there’s also more than enough room to realize your individual wishes and requirements. The CMS is designed to be flexible, allowing you to completely extend and customize your web projects. It’s designed to be a content hub, a central place, to store, manage and deliver your content and digital assets to all your applications.
Built on React and the JAMstack architecture, the greater ecosystem is an opportunity for integrating with many systems. Essentially, every service offering a RESTful API can be integrated with Scrivito – and even packed into a widget, enabling editors to easily place it anywhere on the website.
