The Standout Leader in the Headless CMS Category
G2 ranked Sanity as the leader in the Headless CMS category, as measured by customer review ratings and market presence (share, seller size, and overall impact).
With Sanity, you can be ready for whatever challenge is next with rapid configuration and extensive customization, without any limiting factors such as the number of content types.
I feel like I'm cheating when I use Sanity.io. Config is so customizable and feels truly unlimited. No limit on 'instance' or 'install' type parameters. Just plugable schemas. Feels great, especially with Gatsby.js.

What is GraphQL?
GraphQL is a pattern and an open-source query language for API’s connected to data, consisting of a type system, query language, execution semantics, static validation, and type introspection.
GraphQL enables developers to get the exact information they need in a flexible way, by letting the client define the structure of the data required. By using GraphQL, developers also benefit from the growing GraphQL ecosystem, where new flexible tooling and libraries are added regularly.
Some popular caching and fetch clients for GraphQL include; Apollo , Relay Modern, FetchQL, GraphQL Request, Lokka, Micro GraphQL React and URQL.
While GraphQL is becoming increasingly popular, Sanity.io was built with GROQ as the core query language. The idea behind GROQ, is to be able to describe exactly what information your application needs, while enabling ad hoc joining information from several sets of documents, then stitching together a very specific response with only the exact fields you need.
With Sanity.io’s GROQ and GraphQL endpoints, you'll be hard to find a more versatile API offering for structured content.
