Storyblok Visual Editor

November 2, 2021

I've started my assessment of some headless CMS platforms. While getting started on Storyblok with Next.js I've discovered that it has a nice real-time preview of content as its being edited. Content itself cannot be edited in-line, but it does update in the preview as you edit content. You are also allowed to do something in-line, such as add other components before or after a selected one, move or delete it, or dupe it. Cool stuff to see a headless CMS offer this interface via their SaaS product. It's basically just loading my local server as a preview while content edits go through live APIs; the server updates content from updated API calls.
