Content Migrations in Contentful
I was at Contentful’s offices in Berlin teaching in the Content Graz program. Contentful gave us an overview of their product, and I was struck by how cool the new migrations stuff is. Contentful has to made content model changes drastically less painful by creating a clean API for things like adding fields, moving fields, splitting fields, changing datatypes, and stringing these together into automation scripts which can be synced to different spaces. It’s really nicely done and so much better than just pretending we don’t ever screw up content models.
