The release of Mura 7.1 is the fruition of a vision for Mura as a modern platform that not only provides a way to effectively create and manage the digital experience, but one that helps developers thrive.
API-led development is a mindset and methodology which will make your projects more robust and reliable, reducing the friction of managing even the largest projects. We believe strongly in the concept of “Flow”, of structuring your development in a way that maximizes your performance while minimizing the distractions and worry of failure that inevitably arise. API-led development is an important step in achieving it.
API-led development is a mindset that takes control away from the application and hands it back to the developer. It used to be that the application defined the bulk of the requirements. UI, platform, migration, future-proofing, deployment and lifecycle. By thinking API-first, a lot of that simply goes away.
These days it's hard to get very far, when considering a new site launch or refresh, without coming across WordPress. Which is no surprise, considering it powers almost a third of the internet.

Avenues for learning about Mura are more prevalent than ever, with an unprecedented array of options for following announcements, taking part in community discussions, and keeping apprised of important product updates.
