GraphQL for content fragments

Easily deliver content headlessly to fuel content experiences in modern apps like single-page apps, mobile apps, or in-app experiences using Adobe Experience Manager’s GraphQL API for content fragments.

Efficiency in every digital touchpoint.

Brands are responsible for creating seamless, efficient experiences across an increasing number of digital channels. But quickly creating new, responsive applications can be complicated by siloed content systems and slow server interactions. Using traditional REST APIs has worked well, but these can also slow response times because apps often have to make several requests to get the necessary data or they get more data than they need. GraphQL changes all this.

Experience Manager’s GraphQL API lets developers use industry standard, application-agnostic query language format to query and retrieve content. It is designed to be compact and efficient, returning just the content requested and nothing extra, so responses match the format and needs of the requesting app. Queries can also return nested content and return multiple related items in one call, significantly reducing the time and bandwidth required to retrieve content and app needs. The result is quick, app-like experiences across all digital channels that are responsive and on brand.
