Client for Contentful's Content Delivery API


Javascript SDK for Contentful's Content Delivery API.


Contentful is a content management platform for web applications, mobile apps and connected devices. It allows you to create, edit & manage content in the cloud and publish it anywhere via a powerful API. Contentful offers tools for managing editorial teams and enabling cooperation between organizations.

Browsers and Node.js:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • IE11 / Edge
  • Safari
  • node.js (0.10, iojs-3.x, 4.x, 5.x)

Other browsers should also work, but at the moment we're only running automated tests on the browsers and Node.js versions specified above.

Getting started

In order to get started with the Contentful JS SDK you'll need not only to install it, but also to get credentials which will allow you to have access to your content in Contentful.

In node, using npm:

npm install contentful

Or, if you'd like to use a standalone built file you can use the following script tag or just download it from npmcdn, under the browser-dist directory:

<script src=""></script>

It is not recommended to use the above URL for production.

Using contentful@latest will always get you the latest version, but you can also specify a specific version number:

<script src=""></script>

Check the releases page to know which versions are available.

To get content from Contentful, an app should authenticate with an with an OAuth bearer token.

You can create API keys using Contentful's web interface. Go to the app, open the space that you want to access (top left corner lists all the spaces), and navigate to the APIs area. Open the API Keys section and create your first token. Done.

Don't forget to also get your Space ID.

For more information, check the Contentful's REST API reference on Authentication.

This project strictly follows Semantic Versioning by use of semantic-release.

This means that new versions are released automatically as fixes, features or breaking changes are released.

You can check the changelog on the releases page.

contentful.js 3.x was a major rewrite, with some API changes. While the base functionality remains the same, some method names have changed, as well as some internal behaviors.
