API first Cloud CMS that plays nicely with Ember

Has anyone had any good experiences with a API-first Cloud CMS that plays nicely with Ember?

I was hoping to build out a project with https://prismic.io or https://cosmicjs.com to try them out, but it didn’t seem like they offer any adapters or have any road-map for Emberjs setup.

I’m pretty happy with the WordPress API for many of my projects, but I was excited to possibly move on to something that leaves out the traditional wp-install and hosting.

Any thoughts? This is all I found at first: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23494210/how-to-call-prismic-io-api-from-ember-js

Since then, I reached out to prismic and cosmic and they both said something along the lines of “Our product works with any front-end or backend.” On another note, I wonder if these are the same company

Here is an npm package for cosmic for example, https://github.com/cosmicjs/cosmicjs-node - but before I start trying to work with that, I wanted to see if there was any example or precedent out there for how to smoothly work with ember-data / along the lines of ember-fire https://github.com/firebase/emberfire

Let me know if you’ve heard of anyone using one of these services with Ember.

CosmicJS added some guides on creating adapters and serializers that work with their api,

Nice. I’ve built a real estate website where ember is used for the admin side. Would be a good complement for this project.

Another year has passed and I’m back looking for a cloud CMS for a company blog… I’ll check out Cosmic and see how they are doing with Ember integration.

Check https://kenticocloud.com/. It might be what you’re looking for. And it should be even possible quite easily to write a decent data adapter for that.

The JSON API module for Drupal 8 is also coming along nicely. It’s plug and play, you can filter, sort and specify exactly which fields to return for each request.

If you don’t have a PHP server — or don’t want to deal with it, try out https://pantheon.io/ which offers a free plan, too.

I have a few PHP servers - and also don’t want to deal with them. haha

So, far the ember-wordpress is working out great for my needs - but with a new cloud CMS coming out every month, one of them has to be a big winner. I’ve noticed that they’ve been adding graphQl options and a bunch of cool stuff… but there’s still a deal breaker somewhere in each. I’m playing around with contentful, tipe, and typewriter this week.

any new thoughts here @sheriffderek or should I check the ember slack channels?

@dshults If you’re still looking, I’m currently working on a JSON:API compliant headless CMS.

We’re aiming to launch in the next few months, https://www.lexascms.com/
