Getting Started with Hashnode Headless CMS: GraphQL APIs
Updated over a week ago

Hashnode Headless CMS empowers you to build a blog from the ground up using Hashnode's innovative GraphQL APIs. You have the freedom to select any technology stack of your choice for building the blog, deploy it on your preferred cloud hosting provider, and host it on any custom domain or custom domain sub-paths, such as '/blog.' Best of all, you can continue to leverage Hashnode's authoring tools, including the editor and dashboard, to publish, manage, and collaborate with your team effectively.

Please note: Hashnode Headless CMS is free for independent bloggers or personal blogs. To create a team blog for your product or company, get in touch for access and pricing info.

Follow the steps to start a headless blog on Hashnode:

  1. Create a new personal blog or a team blog on Hashnode if you don't have one already.

  2. Head over to the blog dashboard. You can access the dashboard by adding /dashboard to the blog URL or click on dashboard icon on 'Manage Blogs' page.

  3. Go to the "Advanced" tab inside the dashboard.

  4. Select "Enable headless mode".

  5. Enter the domain URL where you plan to build and host your custom blog. It can be a custom domain or a sub-path of a custom domain like /blog.

  6. Now, you are all set from Hashnode's end. Hashnode won't generate the blog frontend for you to prevent content duplication on search engines.

  7. Go to the GraphQL API Docs and API Playground to learn more about the APIs and build the frontend.
