Magnolia Visual SPA Editor

Make Front-End Apps Fully Editable

As a headless CMS, Magnolia lets you pull content directly into web apps and sites built in frameworks like React, Angular and Vue.

The difference from other headless systems is that content authors and editors maintain full ability to edit content in-context with a WYSIWYG authoring interface. We call this functionality our Visual SPA Editor.

This gives marketers the freedom they need while ensuring developers don't get caught up making minor content changes.

Magnolia Headless vs. Traditional Headless

Magnolia Headless

Traditional Headless


Use Magnolia's industry-leading APIs out of the box and customize them to fit your needs, or simply add your own

Built to be API-first, but without the ability to add or customize APIs as needed


Customize any aspect of the platform, including the user interface, to your evolving demands

Limited customization of the platform beyond content types and fields


Allow authors to see what they are building with in-context editing, including for Single Page Apps, and full live preview

Form-based content editing and no preview capabilities kills the creativity of authors and editors


Give authors the ability to personalize based on implicit and explicit traits right out of the box

Personalization needs to be implemented by developers on the front-end, straining time and resources


More easily build the right security and governance processes with customizable four-eye workflows that are already included

Workflows must be built from the ground up, which adds unforeseen monetary and time costs
