Alternative to Sanity CMS

Spinal is an alternative to Sanity.io. Being a “content platform” makes it quite difficult to use with your static site generator.

Sanity.io is a venture-backed company. With a clear focus on big enterprise customers. It’s based around a “real-time datastore”, with a user interface, called “Sanity Studio” and various SDKs to get the content into your app or website. Dizzy already?

These suite of products are built for enterprise clients. For growing SaaS SMBs this takes too much time to set up.
