What is a Git-based headless CMS?

A Git-based headless content management system keeps your developers and editors in sync. Commits pushed by developers automatically sync to the CMS. Content changes commit back to your Git repository, so your data is always yours.

Keep your workflows

Build static sites with your favorite tools

Your CMS shouldn’t get between developers and the tools they love. Build locally with your favorite Git providers, tools and frontend frameworks, and push to Git and CloudCannon when you’re ready to deploy.

CloudCannon supports all major static site generators, and automatically recognizes which tool you're already using to build your site.

Version control for everyone

Content as code

Your Git repo is the source of truth. With CloudCannon’s two-way Git syncing, it can also keep a record of every change your team has ever made to your site: code, assets, and content. Every substantial change, every fix, and every release — it’s all there for you.

  • Sync changes to content editors with a Git push, enjoy multi-object versioning, and avoid lock-ins.
  • Review changes on one site and merge them into your production branch.
  • Roll back content changes if needed, with full version control of code and content.
  • Maintain full access to your code base in any connected repositories.

Portability

All the benefits of headless, with no lock-in

Your CMS shouldn’t lock you in. With CloudCannon, you own your content — it’s all stored in your repository, and you have a complete history of all changes. With a superior version control system compared to traditional headless CMS platforms, there's no need for backups, expensive data export processes, or concern for data lock-in.
