Contentful announces new capabilities to content platform

Contentful, a composable content platform, unveiled its vision for composable content and the new Contentful Studio product, platform orchestration capabilities, and App Framework features:

  • Connect content experiences with Contentful orchestration. A new set of orchestration capabilities native to the platform enables companies to orchestrate content experiences across teams, regions, and brands without the need to piece together content from different data sources.
  • Create streamlined content with Contentful Studio. Contentful Studio empowers customers to streamline content workflows, development, and publication in one central location. With easy access to all the tools content creators need to produce high-quality content, Studio allows teams to remove reliance on developers by placing the power directly in the hands of content creators. Access rights are centrally managed with governance features.
  • Extend with Contentful App Framework and Ecosystem. The App Framework makes it easier for businesses to adapt the platform to the preferences and routines of their digital teams – from business-specific UIs to integrating personalization or translation tools of choice. Contentful shipped a new version of the open-source design system, Forma 36, to enhance the platform with visually appealing and accessible features. App actions make the content lifecycle more efficient to build and link individual apps together.

Acquia announces updates to Acquia Code Studio

Acquia announced major updates to Acquia Code Studio, a full stack Drupal development platform. A part of Acquia Digital Experience Platform (DXP), Acquia Code Studio provides developers with the tools to plan, build, review, test, deploy, and measure Drupal applications. New updates integrate Code Studio with the Acquia Cloud Platform UI, reducing effort during the procurement and configuration processes.

Developers can now manage their Code Studio seats from the platform in a User Management screen, assign Acquia account users to their Code Studio seats, grant and set roles for their users, and un-assign and reassign seats. Developers can automatically provision Code Studio projects from the platform UI, and see links on their Acquia Cloud environments to the corresponding branch in Code Studio. Features include: 

  • AutoDevOps: Automatically build, test, and deploy Drupal applications with Acquia Code Studio managed continuous integration pipelines.
  • Automatic Updates: Automatically updates Composer packages, replaces deprecated custom code, and submits those changes for users to review in a Merge Request with a dedicated review environment.
  • Powered by GitLab: In partnership with GitLab, Acquia hosts and manages a version of GitLab that is customized for Drupal and Acquia developers on the company’s next-generation infrastructure.

Adwait Mathkari describes the CMS his development team created for one of the The Economist publications. The requirements were relatively straightforward, allowing Mathkari to be delightfully succinct (4 min).
