Sanity vs Tipe: What are the differences?

Developers describe Sanity as "A headless CMS construction kit in JavaScript". Sanity is a headless, real-time CMS where the editor is an open source React-based construction kit and the backend is a graph-oriented cloud datastore with a globally distributed CDN. On the other hand, Tipe is detailed as "Generate an API-first CMS from a schema file with offline prototyping, an inline editor, and with a REST or GraphQL API". All your Apps have text and your developers don't want to manage it. Create and manage your text or assets with powerful editing tools and access it from anywhere with a GraphQL or REST API.

Sanity and Tipe belong to "Cloud Content Management System" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Sanity are:

  • Open source editing environment
  • Hosted & scalable APIs
  • Rich, precise data model

On the other hand, Tipe provides the following key features:

  • Text Management
  • GraphQL
  • REST API

"Hosted" is the top reason why over 6 developers like Sanity, while over 2 developers mention "Scalable Platform" as the leading cause for choosing Tipe.

Sanity and Tipe are both open source tools. It seems that Tipe with 1.96K GitHub stars and 177 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Sanity with 1.15K GitHub stars and 91 GitHub forks.

Contentful

Hi Community, Would like to ask for advice from people familiar with those tools. We are a small self-funded startup and initial cost for us is very important at that stage. That's why we are leaning towards Sanity. The CMS will be used to power our website and flutter cross-platform mobile applications.

Contentful

Former Prismic.io developer here. If you want something robust vs "looks good from a distance," I would recommend Contentful. They are the biggest for a reason. Their CMS handles a lot of use cases and has great documentation. Prismic.io will work well in simple blog-esque use cases. Their more complex features break easily and their documentation is confusing. It has fallen quite a distance behind Contentful. Sanity appears to be a much newer CMS and you might come to regret the lack of features, but I've only briefly reviewed their product.
