Last year, we introduced BaseHub: a fast, collaborative, AI-native Headless CMS. We’re on a mission to make content management fast, simple and delightful—for developers and editors alike. Today, we’re announcing our Public Beta, which means, BaseHub is now open for everyone. You can Sign Up now!
We’ve used them all. Because we have extensive background in building content-heavy websites—many of us come from basement.studio, a digital studio making some of the best websites out there—we’ve explored virtually every Headless CMS that’s in the market right now, and we’re not happy. Most of the CMSs out there fail in all or most of these core pillars:
Speed & Collaboration: The experience in the web apps is too slow and single-player.
Editing Experience: There’s one place to model content and a separate one to actually create it.
Developer Experience: The APIs are not straightforward nor type-safe.
Content Workflow: The editing workflow is too basic; for example, there’s usually no way for an editor to create their own version of a document without compromising production content.
Our Roadmap is designed with these four pillars in mind, and we’re working through it with a talented team of developers and designers.
After a long and useful Alpha Phase, we’re now entering Beta. BaseHub is now reliable enough to support production workloads, although, as we move through our Beta, we’ll be monitoring how our infrastructure scales, we’ll work thorough bugs that may arise, and we’ll make progress on our roadmap. We’ll work hard towards General Availability.
As part of our Public Beta Launch, we're releasing the Diff View, our official Docs, and our Pricing Plans. Let’s go over these announcements.
The Diff View is a powerful way to see all the changes you've made across your whole Repo, so you can Commit them with confidence.
Give it a try, and please let us know if you have any feedback for it.
We shipped our Docs, one place in which you can get to know the Platform. We'll work hard to explain concepts in a simple manner, and add guides and examples for you to connect BaseHub to popular web frameworks. You can check out our guide for connecting to Next.js to get a hang of how our DX is!
We've built the Billing infrastructure that will let us provide the service sustainably. Now Teams can pay for BaseHub, and our pricing plans are as it follows:
Personal Account, starts completely for free, and includes:
One user, you
375 Blocks, then $2.5 per 125
75k API Requests, then $2.5 per 25k
Team, starts at $29, and includes:
Unlimited users—bring your whole team to BaseHub
Discord + Email Priority Support
500 Blocks, then $2.5 per 125
100k API Requests, then $2.5 per 25k
We’re beyond greatful for our Alpha Users. They provided us with valuable feedback and bug reports, and they’ve seen how we’re constantly improving BaseHub, one day at a time. Because of that, Alpha Users will be able to use BaseHub completely for free until 23 May, 2024. If you’re an Alpha User and you’re worried about this date or our pricing, don’t hesitate to reach out.
Our mission is to be the place where people create, store, and deliver great content for the Internet.
To that end, we’re building a tool that lets you write structured content fast, in a beautiful, snappy, collaborative webapp. It leverages AI to speed up your workflow. Most importantly, we’re building a versioning system similar in properties to
git: changes are stored in immutable snapshots (“commits”), and a linear history is preserved.
This architecture decision might seem trivial, but enables powerful collaboration workflows, such as branching, merging, diffing, and eventually “Content Requests” (ode to GitHub’s “Pull Requests”), forks, and more. We’re building
git for structured content. We see this as the missing piece of the content story in the Web.
