Thanks for the reply. I went ahead and installed Cockpit this afternoon. Seems like a great little tool. Does a lot of stuff that WordPress does but without the plug-ins and complexity. It appears to be much more full featured than Netlify CMS. I'm going to use it for a Gatsby site.

I cannot figure out how to get a single entry through the API, do you know how? I couldn't find it on the documentation . This one doesn't work api/collections/get/posts/5c7bb0293466390010000275

Not tried that yet. I'll give it a go and report back when I get chance.

Kentico Cloud + Github Pages + Azure functions (node.js) + Azure tables (+scss, but it is not a bug deal :))

Gatsby + styled-components + airtable + aws lambda + gh-pages

I just updated a Strapi Gatsby tutorial blog post -, I updated it including a series on Youtube. I explain and show the basics of getting a Strapi/Gatsby stack working together.
We've decided that if the community asks and we get enough interest, I'll do a complete A to Z tutorial including deployment to various server solutions (Azure, DO or Linode, Heroku, etc).
what's the cost of maintaining self hosted strapi? The biggest hurdle for using it in our team for clients is the fact that one has to take care of it afterwards

I've used WordPress + Gatsby + Netlify
But i'm currently working on a site with Contentful + Gatsby + Heroku

one more vote for GatsbyJS + Contentful + Netlify
how did that work out for you? I mean how does WP handle as headless CMS?
Yes naturally, maintenance has to be weighed against the ability to bend Strapi to your will and customize nearly every facet of it and so on. We have workflows in place after handoff that make the time for maintenance a real non issue for most use cases - and it is getting easier as we approach Beta.
What do you think the cost of maintaining a self hosted Strapi project costs an organization? Versus let's a SaaS solution? I don't really mean in terms of dollars but in terms of activity or actions...
Gatsby + GraphQL + Styled Components + Netlify
I started out by following this excellent tutorial series, Pro Gatsby by Level Up Tutorials.

I would rate it as manageable. I haven't done a site with it in a year now, and I see that somethings have changed. So it could be getting better. That said there was a bit extra work i had to do to make it happy. I've been pushing clients towards the free tier of contentful as it's been working great. But a lot of clients still want to use wordpress.

about to start building a site with Gatsby + styled-components + typescript
I guess you meant "why prismic"? Cause it's affordable, feature-rich and the source plugin is great

March 8, 2019 at 4:41pm
I just found your comment about prismic on reddit, and it made me look at it - doesn't look bad at all! For $7 / month I get hosted headless CMS with quite powerful editing capabilities, 3 users (me + 2 client seats) and no hard limits on media storage / API requests / anything?
Gatsby and Prismic work well together, but i didn't find solution for prismic's preview..

It’s a Headless CMS
I am using wordpress + netlify, so far I have been enjoying it. Here are the challenges I have.
Gatsby + Tailwind + Emotion + Contentful, hosted on Netlify. I am looking at switching out Contentful for though.

Gatsby + Firebase = :love_letter:
