Set up Contentstack

1. Set up Stack

A stack can be defined as a pool of data or a container that holds all the content/assets related to a site. This is the first page that will appear once you log in.

2. Create Content Models

Content models in Contentstack refer to the structured templates that define how your content is organized and presented.

3. Set up Environments

A publishing environment can be defined as one or more content delivery destination (app/website) where the content needs to be published.

4. Create Tokens

Tokens are needed to authorize API calls. There are following types of tokens in Contentstack: Access token, Delivery token, Management token, and Authtoken.

5. Fetch Content

Contentstack is an API-first headless CMS platform; it provides the content backend (content repository and management), which is separate from the front-end (presentation).
