Crafter CMS Community Edition

Crafter CMS distinguishes itself by its modern architecture, which in turn enables:

  • Truly decoupled content management (and disconnected global delivery), composed of independent microservice-based components
  • Dynamic, personalized content delivery of every request at speed
  • API first CMS (content as a service via GraphQL & REST)
  • Git-based CMS (allows for excellent developer cadence)
  • Shared-nothing, serverless, delivery architecture (planet-scale)
  • Front-end agnostic (bring your favorite UI framework or use as a headless CMS)
  • Equal support for all three CMS stakeholders: content authors, developers and system administrators
  • Build new apps or weave into existing apps and sites


Version 3.1.0
