Headless, Hybrid CMS and DXP - What are those and what Processwire has to do with them?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Recently I have read a series of articles about some new terms like Headless CMS, Hybrid CMS and Digital Experience Platforms ( DXP). I cannot get a clear picture of these but I could understand that these are different from the traditional CMS as we use now, at least in theoretical level. Does any one here have any better understanding on these topics ? may be what / how we can apply these on the processwire CMS ?

 

just for the talk

Hi Jeevanish,

For the most point some of these are just buzz words.

Headless CMS is basically the CMS exists away from the website and talks via an API such as JSON / XML / GraphQL (This allows you to use the data anywhere on the web or an internet connected drive, lets say for an APP)

Hybrid CMS is something that seems relatively new, and it seems to be that Headless CMS doesn't have great editor functionality, hybrid seems to be a buzz word around it's a great easy to use CMS with Headless functionality, I guess if you installed GraphQL to ProcessWire it would be considered hybrid.

Digital Experience Platform seems to be a platform that all talks to each other using different mediums. Lets say you have a train station, that system lets you book a ticket, that then updates a message board letting them know how many tickets are left, which updates their website and also sends to the ticket attendents which shows that the ticket is for that train. This is just an example. This system can be accomplished with Headless or Hybrid.

      Hi,
      I'm working on a website where in the back-end in one template i have multiple page reference fields using the same conditions (parent and template). Is there a way if i selected a page in field A it won't show up anymore in the list of field B or field C etc?
      I was looking at creating a custom string but i couldn't wrap my head around it.

      I'm someone who has been developing websites for a while, mostly doing full stack .NET development and ASP scripting before that, while using Silverstripe and some other PHP frameworks for some smaller projects which worked well enough for quite some time. 
      Now I have some time on my hands and decided to evaluate some different CMS options. 
      Diving in as a newbie into: 
      Wordpress 
      Processwire 
      CraftCMS
      After a short while I decided that Wordpress was out while I'm still evaluating Craft and Processwire. 
      My question is, is there any interest here in reading about my experiences in trying to get the feature set I want up and running, with these other systems?

      I want the admin to select one of the child of a parent in "page reference" as radio buttons, but it comes out empty
      here is my hook in site/ready.php
      $wire->addHookAfter('InputfieldPage::getSelectablePages', function($event) {   if ($event->object->hasField == 'childLinks') {     $page = $event->arguments('page');     $parent = "parent=" . $page->path;     $event->return = $event->pages->find($parent);   } });

      Hi.
      I'm trying to figure out what might be the best approach when using PW for your CMS, but needing access custom tables. I know you can query your custom tables, so that's not my question here. What I'm trying to figure out is if I should separate an application from PW.
      Out of the box, the application I will be using has its' own tables and the app is built towards using those tables, so I don't want to rewrite the app to use PW, seems too much work.

      I do however want to use PW for the CMS and frontend where my users can add/update rows in those custom tables. Now the app itself can be connected from various devices on a handful of ports, so I'm expecting a high volume of requests to the app to a point where I'm seriously considering a dedicated server for this project.
      Would it be beneficial to create a whole subdomain just for the app and use PW to query the db? Or should I keep the 2 in the same db? Pros/Cons would be great here.
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      Upon reading these articles
      https://dev.to/maxlaboisson/an-introduction-to-api-first-cms-with-directus-open-source-headless-cms-9f6
      https://snipcart.com/blog/jamstack-clients-static-site-cms
      I was thinking that PW can be used for a Jamstack or Headless CMS with no changes at all.
      You can easily create  REST Api with PW or use the GraphQL module
      https://github.com/dadish/ProcessGraphQL
       
      So ProcessWire is an Open Source Headless CMS since 2010
