4 min read

Learn how to develop your own .NET applications that use Kontent APIs.

    SDKs and API references

    We highly recommend using SDKs to make your app development easier.

    Delivery API

    Get content from your Kontent project with Delivery API. Check out our best practices for getting content and examples on filtering content.

    Management API

    Manage and import content into your Kontent projects. With Management API, you can create, edit, delete, publish your content, and more.

    Postman collection

    Get to know the Kontent REST APIs with the popular Postman client. Install our Postman collection and try any of the API endpoints.

    Run in Postman

    Learn about changes in Kontent APIs and their availability in the API reference.

    Get started tutorials

    If you are new to the .NET world, go through these tutorials. They should get you up to speed before you dig into the sample apps.

    Sample apps

    Do you already know what framework you want to explore? Check one of these sample apps. If you have any questions, ideas for improvement, or you get stuck in code, feel free to submit a GitHub issue.

    Dive deeper

    Take your Kontent-powered apps further with the following APIs and features.

    Strongly-typed models

    Both the Delivery and Management SDK support strongly-typed (POCO) models based on the content types in your Kontent project.

    You can generate strongly-typed models automatically by using the .NET Generator.

    By using strongly-typed models, you get: 

    • Type safety during compile-time
    • Convenient usage in code  – @Article.ArticleTitle vs. @Article.GetString("article_title")
    • Support for type-dependent features such as display templates in MVC

    ASP.NET Core extensions

    If you're developing an ASP.NET Core web app, the ASP.NET Core extensions package will give you helper classes for easier development. For example, you can use img-asset tag helper for more convenient work with responsive images via Image transformation API, and a webhook validator to verify your webhook's payload integrity.

    Jamstack

    Jamstack is an architecture designed to make the web faster, more secure, and easier to scale out of the box.

    The first step is to choose is a static site generator (SSG). A static site generator combines data from Kontent with specific visual templates, and prerenders a static site, which you can host on a CDN.
