Sanity
Contentful
Next.js

Im building a simple portfolio website using Next.js and all the content is static, what's the best between Contentful and Sanity.

I really like the self-hosting and custom layout with sanity however I don't think time customizing is worth it anymore.

Any thoughts

I am building a POC in Next.js. I usually use CRA+ MobX + Contentful, but this time I want to give a try to Next and GraphQL. Any suggestions on what tool to use for state management/content management? I am looking for a modern and quick to implement solution.

Contentful
Firebase

Hi. I am gonna build a simple app for a company to ease their work. The company is sending out pdf files to their users' email. The data is a health analysis with a lot of different health values. The app should be an MVP, where users can watch their data instead of opening a pdf file. The company should be able to fill in the data in either Firebase or Contentful database. Is Contentful or Firebase best for this solution? What is your opinion?

How does one manage content across web-app and iOS?

Is there such a thing as a multi-tenant headless CMS, such as Contentful, that's used today to power multi-platform apps? It seems the most popular route is to build a custom CMS unless it's something very basic (like a marketing website).
