What do you like best?

Before Butter, we were locked into a self-hosted solution that commanded regular updates, plugin management, and a learning curve for any new joiners within our team reading documentation to get up to speed.

We have just completed a website redesign project with ButterCMS as its backbone, one major plus we noticed from the get-go is the fact collections make it really easy to share data across the content platform. Our website is based on a component architecture and that was easily replicated in Butter using the component library, this was further advanced by re-using collections and for us, this has meant colors, image sizes, and other re-usable elements can be shared so our content editors can create pages quickly.

From a technical point of view, we were able to get up and running in a matter of minutes using the API documentation and the ButterClient, after finding our feet using collections we were able to build a scalable architecture based on a React app. Since our website is built around component design, we now have a bunch of styled-components that allow any new pages to be quickly built up and deployed in minutes. This is mirrored in ButterCMS and therefore allows our content editors to build pages, send us the link and within minutes the page is created and live. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the biggest issues we're facing right now is the speed of the backend dashboard, this may be due to the number of collections we're running in order to create re-use of content across the platform. With that said the time-savings we get from architecting our content in this way far outway the degradation in the admin. It would be nice to see an easier way to manage collections to help page load times increase when managing content on the platform.

Our second biggest gripe could be again down to how we've architected our solution, but since our components are mirrored both in code and the Butter component library it has meant when content editors build pages they are utilizing the drag and drop interface for the type builder. This process has two issues:

- The first being that once a component is created, it cannot be updated, you are required to first add the component to a new/existing page, remove it from the component library, add your new field and then save it as a new component. It would be great if components could be edited which leads to our next issue (which is also true of page type configurations as well).

- Secondly, if you edit a component that has been used on a page to add/remove a field this is then not reflected across all components where this instance is used. It would be great if the component schema could be shared across the board and those instances were used listed on the update to confirm where the changes will take effect.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main issues we solved using butter was to migrate away from the old age problem or developing our own in-house CMS or absorbing the cost of licensing, running, and training our team on a platform that changed regularly. With Butter we're able to use our own architecture, coding standards and share content across multiple platforms from a single source. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Butter CMS is very easy to use the built-in API client make calling the API a breeze. As an architect, butter cms gives me more flexibility to use the cms as in ways that can not be used in a traditional CMS like WordPress. A good example is hybrid apps, we let parts of the website to be updated by butter (ie. button names, heading, wording for a page) this allows our business to do a change without any downtime to our clients. Also, Butter CMS allows us to build very reusable view components that can be added to the website without coding, just some very simple configuration on our end. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

*Not really dislike or deal-breakers but my wish list to really take ButterCMS to the next level*

There should be a menu for Components and also Components need to update across the board. When you make a change to a component it doesn't affect the other components, that means you have to find every component and make changes to them.

The write API if very lacking and not part of ButterCMS API Client, and documentation is not really there yet(if you understand API shouldn't be trouble for you). We were able to get things to work, but it was a lot of frustration at times.

Needs a built-in Site Map component.

Needs a built-in Navigation component.

Needs SEO for pages, just like how the Blog works (it's very useful).

Write API for the ButterCMS Client.

Repeater needs to be able to have repeaters basically a list of lists of lists of objects.

If you think of Components as objects and Repeaters as List then you will understand why a user would want of list of objects or a list of lists.

Still Good Work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ButterCMS gives the flexibility to decouple from the traditional cms workflow. For me, this provides the ability for a more rapid development cycle and the ability to present multiple front-end designs using the same page data. Also, having the ability to integrate with any additional software is a breeze when using ButterCMS. You are no longer locked into a specific set of plugins/technologies or integrations that a more traditional CMS would provide. A very "Buttery" user experience that I look forward to using every time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The ability to create reusable components within the ButterCMS GUI is great, but the ui/workflow for the process is a bit lackluster. There should be a menu item for a component builder. Each component could act as a master component. When a "master" component is updated, the user could be prompted to inflict the change on all implementations of the component or selectively change the implementations of them as needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Butter is allowing my company to decouple from the traditional cms workflow. This is allowing for unlimited integration possibilities without being dependant on the integrations allowed by other non-headless CMS options on the market. This is a powerful benefit because we now control what software we can integrate with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

So many problems. We have quite a big Frontend system with upto 5 platforms running on the same API. ButterCMS helps us to minimize our platforms from 5 to 3. We want to have fewer platforms to manage all our content, and ButterCMS fulfils that need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's super easy to setup and use in development, setting up keys to identify content, and quickly viewing a example response from the api buttercms dashboard gives you confidence to implement the calls in your codebase and map the data structures to the relevant places.

The intuitive WYSIWYG interface makes it easy for users to create and update the blogs whenever they need to. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Image management was a little tedious. We store some of our images on S3 buckets and when trying to upload an image from a link, it would save the image as an audio file instead of as an image. Also you are only allowed one feature image. Would be nice to have an option for something like a banner image as well as a hero image. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to have our own internally managed blog, which was nice, but it meant that we had to consistently manage and update all the codebase. This draws on developer resources that weren't always available and eventually the code became more brittle and harder to maintain. ButterCMS has allowed our marketing team to do their work without feeling frustrated trying to build content. This means they utilize their time better and developers aren't spending all their time maintaining the codebase. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We primarily use butter for marketing purposes, using it for content growth. The best thing about Butter is that it's easy to stand up (transition speed was key for us). Furthermore, we like how the foundational elements of pages can be changed over time seamlessly. This was reassuring, knowing that we could make fast decisions early on and iterate as our content/marketing strategy shifted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

To fully leverage Butter you need to be or have front-end developer support. This is not a platform for "non-technical" folks looking for a WYSIWYG platform out of the box. Once you get it set up, adding content is super simple, but it takes an initial setup period. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Our own blog - value based content for our customers. Benefit for us was clear: we do not need to develop our own database and full management.

What do you like best?

The flexibility and the fact that ButterCMS worked with any tech stack plus the documentation/support made it very easy to implement.

Our original content server was heavily customized and it was difficult to make updates since no one knew PHP. With ButterCMS, the engineers had a much easy time integrating it into our site. When and if they encountered issues or had questions the super responsive and helpful customer support was always there to help resolve the issues.

Also, as a PM working with a remote team of engineers on different time zones, it made my job easier being able to update content on the site directly without requiring a lot of dev work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing major but the one thing that comes to mind is the text editor. It was a bit difficult to customize blog articles with things like bullets, assign header tags etc without messing up the format. Also I would have liked an integration with photo providers :) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its a pretty cool CMS plus you can get a trial to see how it works. The documentation online is also pretty helpful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The content on our site was outdated and we needed a way to post blog articles to help users make decisions. By implementing ButterCMS, we were able to improve our SEO rankings which in turn boosted our acquisition and engagement so all in all it was a very good idea.

I like the simplicity of ButterCMS. I used many platforms before and ButterCMS is the easiest to use as far as I know. Especially formatting texts such as font, text size, heading...etc is so flexible and I do not have to be limited by the given options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The ease of use of the API in my blog has been seamless. The interface stays consistent so any between upgrades, and it's all restful. The CMS solution makes it very easy to live in the JAMstack world and manage my content from one place.

For an example use case: if I wanted to setup content that defined how navigation looked, I just have to have the housing and design setup on the front-end and inject that data from their API. Simple! If I had to modify the content in any way, I can progressively enhance my content with ease pushing simply updates without much heavy lifting. Other benefits along the first example include the flexibility to define your content and collections freely for your needs.

Lastly, the customer support is very responsive with quick resolution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I like everything about Butter CMS so far. There was a hangup I had near the beginning of using the admin panel for creating collections and viewing the full list. I gave them a suggestion a while back on how to make this make more sense, and I see that they've improved on it so they do listen to the voice of the customer.

The other thing I'd like to see better implemented is the response interface and accessing the inner content apart from the meta data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I used Butter CMS for a project with one organization that I worked for, and when I had similar requirements at my next job, I immediately recommended it there because I knew that working with it again would be perfect for me.

As a developer (formerly) and technical architect with a lot of experience with HTML, CSS, Javascript, and several server-side rendering languages, I prefer to build my UI from the ground up, so using a headless CMS is a no-brainer for me and Butter CMS is the best one I've found. It's been able to provide all of the functionality that I've needed on the projects I've used it on, and it's not overly complex so I don't feel like I'm only utilizing 10% of the product. Similarly, the simplicity implies to me minimal overhead.

The documentation is great, and the support team has been excellent regarding both response time (usually same day - within an hour or so, even) and efficacy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any particular thing that I "dislike" at the moment. As I mentioned above, the support team is great so any time I've had an issue I've reached out to them and resolved it quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As I mentioned under "What do you like best?" the main problem for me is otherwise having to rely on CMS platforms that take too much control away from the developer and/or require you to essentially learn to use that CMS like you'd learn to write another language. I want to bring to the table my frontend, my backend API's, decisions related to authentication and all of that, and I just want Butter to house my content and provide an interface where the people responsible for content on our website can go and make those changes, and that's exactly what it provides: no more, no less.

We've used ButterCMS since day 1 at Bottlecode. We were able to implement our basic content strategy in half a day using ButterCMS and our content team loves the product.

What do you like best?

I made the decision to switch from Contentful to ButterCMS after doing a bit of shopping around / research of the current HeadlessCMS offerings.

ButterCMS is an API first platform, served in JSON in a mostly RESTful way. It was definitely built with developers in mind, which is what makes its integration, setup time, and delivery among the top praised aspects of the platform/service.

Here are some of the best features:

- Collections and the ability to order fields and items

- The Page engine to build static and templated pages

- A Blog engine that serves a collection of Posts with SEO in mind

- Great documentation in multiple languages and frameworks

- Integration with Filestack / CDN

- Page Preview

- And last but not least, an absolutely amazing Customer Service team, super responsive and helpful!

Things that really impressed me:

- I reported a bug and it was fixed over the weekend. That's dedication!

- Our Marketing team loved the ease in which they can now manage content in comparison to their experience with Contentful

- Real conversations with the Co Founder and Customer Success team

- Getting informed of new features and being asked for input on what would make this service better

Overall, I would highly recommend this over other Headless CMS services I have tried and evaluated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think the admin interface is showing its age from a UI perspective, but is generally great from a UX perspective. Regardless, it is very usable and needs little to no on-boarding to using it, which my team loves!

There really just isn't much to dislike about this service! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely give this Headless CMS a try, they even have a developer tier (free) that allows you to use most of the features of the platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our team set out to solve the problem of having TWO CMSs run our marketing site. We had a blog in Wordpress and the rest of the site was in React/Gatsby/Contentful.

Managing two CMSs was a pain. Matching UI elements in two completely different stacks was a nightmare. The marketing team in particularly dislikes Contentful for various reasons, so I was tasked for exploring alternatives.

After integrating with Butter, we were able to get the best features of Wordpress (Preview, Edit history, Blog Engine, SEO) plus the ability to essentially build custom admin forms (Page engine), all through a single CMS. Pulling the site through a traditional SSR application gave us the ability to run our site similar to a Wordpress architecture, which was important to the Marketing Team.

We were able to seamlessly integrate ButterCMS into our existing Progressive Web App (PWA) to help provide our community with more resources and grow our digital marketing. We are able to publish content regularly to our PWA and grow our marketing efforts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be tough to say that there is anything in particular that we dislike. Our development team was able to hook up to ButterCMS's API relatively easily and get our blog up and running very fast. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They have a lot of user support documentation that is very helpful for development team in getting ButterCMS set up on your platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We built our PWA using Stenciljs and since it is framework-free and based on web components we wanted something that would integrate seamlessly. Additionally, we wanted something that would allow us to publish new content to our website that did not require developers, designers, and QA testers. We discussed custom building a blog and a CMS but the time and investment was tough to justify because we dedicate most of our time to client work. ButterCMS allows anyone on our team to easily publish new content to our PWA without the need of skilled developers or designers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
