Don't just take our word for it

Sanity has set the new standard for managing content

Being experienced with CMSes like Contentful, Craft, Wordpress, Strapi, when using Sanity it feels like most of the annoying aspects of all those platforms have been considered and solved...What's most *surprisingly* great about Sanity is how thorough it is in its approach – from its well-documented developer experience to its minimalistic and user-friendly user interface.

A perfect balance of structure and flexibility for creating digital content for the modern web

Sanity's approach to supporting the design, creation, use, and reuse of structured content strikes an ideal balance between supporting known tasks and needs ... and leaving the doors open to build efficient tools and workflows for highly specific use cases. I've used a number of other headless/decoupled systems in the past (as well as content APIs on traditional tightly coupled CMSs), and each time have eventually run into... limitations of their systems. Not so with Sanity: anything I can think of, it can do.
