React Bricks vs


React Bricks and are both Headless CMSs with visual editing capabilities, making it easy for marketers to create and manage content without needing to write code.

Both platforms have an extensive set of features that allows for advanced customizations, such as custom content blocks and custom fields. Additionally, they both offer integrations with external content sources, like other headless CMSs or e-commerce platforms, providing a powerful and intuitive tool for content creation and management.

Despite their similarities, React Bricks and differ in several ways. Let’s take a look.

Content Management Vision

strives to empower marketing content editors to create independently, without the need for developer assistance.

On the other hand, React Bricks aims to provide editors with autonomy while ensuring the consistency of the corporate identity. To achieve this, designers and developers need to create the content blocks that form the corporate design system as React components. This unified design system ensures a consistent preservation of the corporate image.

Visual editing interface

With, you edit texts using sidebar text input fields, and you can preview the changes in real time on the page, meaning you can make sure everything is just right before you publish it.

React Bricks takes this concept one step further by allowing you to directly edit the page content inline, just as if you were using a word processor like Word or Pages. This is more intuitive for content editors, as it eliminates the need to switch between the page and the sidebar, allowing them to make changes quickly and efficiently.

Hosting and Deployment

Both and React Bricks provide the opportunity to host the frontend website wherever you want, giving you the flexibility to choose the best platform for your needs. However, adds a tracking pixel to your frontend website.

This feature allows you to have full control over your API infrastructure and server location, and gives you the ability to customize it according to your specific needs.

Pricing model pricing model is based on page views. This is accomplished by inserting a tracking pixel into each page to track the number of visits, which may not be suitable or ideal for enterprise customers.

React bricks, on the other hand, does not track your page views; its pricing model is based on the number of pages, authors, support level and the features required. For enterprise customers, plans are tailored to their specific needs.

Collaboration and React Bricks use different strategies to manage the collaboration of several editors working on the same website. offers real-time collaboration, allowing multiple users to work on the same page simultaneously.

React Bricks employs a lock system to prevent conflicts when multiple users edit the same page at the same time.

This feature shows who is online and viewing a page. It uses a lock system to stop two users from editing the same content at the same time, thereby preventing a "last save wins" situation. When an editor starts editing a page, they gain write control, which prevents other users from editing. The lock is released when the page is saved, allowing other editors to make changes. If required, the lock can also be manually released.

This lock mechanism is often preferred by enterprise customers as it helps accurately track content creation responsibilities.
