I haven't stared using Kentico. But I wonder; about using Kentico as just an API: When my content lives in Kentico, what's the best way for serving the content on other devices and frameworks, such as integrate with Android App, iOS app, using Angular in the GUI, etc. Am i tied to the Web Parts or are many developers just accessing content as an API? My alternative is COntentful that is simply an API with no default components. I'f like to see some proof of Koncito being use din that manner.
You can also create custom global events which will be fired anytime the regular events are called as well as the RESTful events are called. Pretty robust way to create and develop your site and apps.
You can access most any object and content (custom built and out-of-the-box) from Kentico's RESTful API, which should work just fine with the majority of your mobile application development.
We are using Web API 2 to build out a Xamarin Android and IOS app using Kentico on the back end. Here is a good article... Using ASP.NET Web API in Kentico 8.1
@Jim, I'd be interested in hearing a bit more about that (good, bad, indifferent), shoot me an email if you would.
I'll second Jim's response. I am doing the same thing and it is working out very well.
