API Performance

Has anyone done any benchmarking on the performance of the API?

It’d be cool to see numbers about how it matches up against other web frameworks and static site generators.

Hi Brian,

API performance highly depends on what you want to measure (cached vs. uncached), location, how complex your queries are. In that way, we don’t provide response time guarantees as that would be a snapshot of a current state.

You also mention:

But that seems like a misaligned comparison, inasmuch as Contentful itself is an API, what would be the measure for static site generators if not build time?
