Welcome to Skylark

What is Skylark?

Skylark is a powerful Content Management System (CMS) for building, operating and scaling products focussed on video and other multimedia content.

Skylark makes it easy for content teams to curate media assets alongside related metadata objects and apply extremely granular licensing and availability rules at every level. Its GraphQL API is flexible enough to integrate with any third-party services, and since Skylark is headless, it can power any user experience.

API Reference

The Skylark API is built on GraphQL. Skylark's API always returns predictable results, returns JSON-encoded responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes to allow you to quickly and easily ship your product. You can read more about our API conventions here.

Every Skylark account ships with a completely customisable data model. At time of writing this default model is focussed around entertainment media such as OTT products in the vein of Netflix or Disney+, however the user has the option of adapting or augmenting this model with their own object types, fields and relationships or simply deleting everything already in place and starting from scratch.

Not a developer?

You can use the Skylark UI to create and manage all of your metadata.

It's built for navigating large, complex content libraries and metadata models, so it works for 11 titles or 11 thousand.

It’s updated continuously and it’s open source so you can build your own custom curatorial workflows.
