Why Slicknode?

You should not have to choose between a ready made solution and flexibility. With Slicknode you get both:

Automate the repetitive work with a battle tested foundation,
extend with ease where you need the flexibility:

  • Reduce time to market and create better software at unparalleled speed.
  • Reduce costs by automating the grunt work so you can focus on what matters.
  • Simplify workflows by having one central data HUB that can deliver data and content to any channel (Web, Mobile, IoT etc.)

Faster Iteration

Take your ideas to production in minutes, not months! Time is of the essence, so we built the tools to make your digital project a success:

  • Do a market test with minimal risk
  • Innovate > Ship > Test > Repeat: Slicknode takes your speed of innovation to the next level
  • Ship features at a pace not seen before

Boost Productivity

Start your project the right way and only build things once! The modular architecture is not just a feature but built into the core:

  • Reuse Functionality without changes from existing modules so your never have to reinvent the wheel again.
  • Modular architecture that scales with your demands, even in large teams with complex requirements.

Improve Workflows

Use a solution for modern development workflows, minimal ramp-up time and optimal collaboration:

  • The application state lives in your code: Merge, review and rollback features on your terms with your tools like Git. No clunky proprietary UI to make schema changes.
  • Multi stage environments for testing in isolation - make accidentally breaking functionality a thing of the past.
  • Clone your application with a single command. No cloud-infrastructure setup necessary.

Leverage Existing Software

Modern IT solutions have to be integrated in a network of existing systems, from internal software to 3rd party APIs. Don’t start from scratch - extend and modernize without disruption to your ongoing operations.

  • Add any 3rd party API and legacy systems without effort
  • Full access to the NPM-Ecosystem, the worlds largest package registry
  • Seamlessly extend existing GraphQL APIs without changes to the original API.

Effortless Security

Secure your software without breaking the bank. Define complex authorization rules for your data in minutes, from multi-tenant SaaS platforms to large enterprise software - it just takes a few lines of code:

  • Declaratively define permission rules only once. The Slicknode Query Engine applies the necessary filters automatically for your entire API, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally exposing data.
  • Built-In authentication and authorization with complex rules that span multiple DB tables, for ultimate control and flexibility.

Headless CMS

Start creating content the minute you start your project. Content creators can get involved immediately and developers can work with real data right from the start.

Slicknode provides a powerful CMS with forms, sorting and sophisticated filters based on your data model and permissions.

Better Code Quality

Use the extensively tested APIs from Slicknode with your own data model. No need to write repetitive tests for your CRUD APIs.

Use Test-Driven-Development for all your extensions for a stable and future proof application.


The spec compliant GraphQL API works with all the tools you already know (React, Angular, Vue, iOS, Javascript, TypeScript etc). It also gives you full access to the quickly growing GraphQL ecosystem and makes your project future proof.

Use Slicknode with IDE integrations (autocomplete etc.), combine with other GraphQL and REST APIs or use it with any of the high quality libraries and utilities built by industry giants like Facebook and Github.

Gradual Adoption

Start adopting Slicknode without having to change your existing systems. Embed existing systems with custom resolvers for a smooth and gradual migration path. All it takes is one Javascript function that loads the data from the data source.
