Content Delivery API released in public

The new Content Delivery API, powered by GraphQL, is online at last! You can now use DatoCMS to create public-facing apps of any kind!

Here's the official announcement blog post.

Changes to CMA documentation

We expanded our Content Management API documentation with some new (much needed) chapters:

  • Overview
  • Authentication
  • JSON Schema
  • Official clients
Status page

We just released a new status page to better communicate downtime and system outages to our customers: http://status.datocms.com

(Yes, it's not in HTTPS.. we're having some problems with Let's Encrypt)

Released v2 of Content Management API

We silently released v2 of our Content Management API. The major change is how file uploads are now handled:

  • We no longer have an "Image" and "Image gallery" field. Every existing image field has been converted to a "Single file" field, and every "Image gallery" field has been converted into a "Multiple files" field. We made sure to add a format validation so that only images can be uploaded, so everything should work exactly as before.
  • When fetching records from the API that contain single/multiple file fields, you will no longer receive the complete "Upload" payload, but just its ID. You can fetch all the info regarding an Upload using the GET /uploads/:id endpoint.
  • When creating/updating records that contain single/multiple file fields, you no longer have to pass the complete "Upload" payload, but just its ID (or array of IDs, in case it's a "multiple files" field).
  • We released a new version of all of our clients (JS/Ruby/GatsbyJS/Middleman) to reflect this change, while mantaining the old methods signature.

Despite the big change, we tried not to break sites using our old clients. If no X-Api-Version: 2 header is passed, we assume Version 1 of our API is requested, so the GET /items and GET /items/:id endpoints will keep on returning data in the old format.

Important: Content Management API v1 will be sunsetted on September 1st, and so please upgrade your projects dependencies before this date!

New Dashboard!

We just released a complete redesign of our Account dashboard!

Some of the perks you'll find inside:

  • A completely renewed UI (which we hope you'll like it);
  • A better flow to upgrade plan and change billing information;
  • New project demos (PHP, Rails, Express.JS, React Native);
  • You can now download not only DatoCMS invoices, but also credit notes;
  • If users invited to a DatoCMS project erroneously try to login to the Account dashboard, they will be automatically redirected to their project;

We'll soon release the following much needed changes:

  • Better management of project transfers to a different account (destination accounts will have to manually accept the transfer request);
  • Ability to completely delete your account;
