Headless CMS

Headless CMS have become more and more popular in 2016 and are also known as “JAMstack CMS” or “Decoupled CMS”. They are called headless because the CMS has its front-end component stripped and decoupled from its backend, which means the actual serving of the website or app. So a headleass CMS is only a backend delivering content via an API.

The benefits of a headless CMS are that it doesn’t have to care how and where the content is displayed, because it just focuses on storing and delivering the content and provides tools to create and organize it. Legacy systems like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc. all have to be hosted and built together with the site every time it’s served.
