What Is Headless Content Management System?

Term “Headless” refers to the lack of a frontend. A Headless CMS contains an API and backend system where the content is stored and delivered. Publishing content to a web service through an API that is capable of delivering to any device(smartphone, smartwatch, laptop), fulfills the lack of frontend. Headless CMS uses API calls to execute content into a webpage. This is most preferable option than building relationships between content (frontend) and backend similar to other CMS do like WordPress. Also, there is no need for any hosts.

Why Headless CMS?

Here are some of the reasons of choosing headless CMS:

Scalable- Content publishing environment is not accessible from the database so using this will prevent malware attacks.
Compatible- You can publish the content to any smart device while the backend can be controlled from one device
Scalable- Front end and backend are separated so there is no separate time need for maintenance. It allows you to customize your website anytime without compromising the performance.
Control- It doesn’t have any rules and gives the developer complete control. Developer can integrate with any codebase and use any preferred language of their choice.
Flexibility- Transitional CMS is limited. Use of headless CMS will allow you to design your front end. Also, it comes with a well-defined API, so allocating more time to create content instead of managing it.
