What is a Headless CMS?
A Headless CMS is a back-end only content management system (CMS) built from the ground up as a content repository that makes content accessible for display on any device.
The term 'headless' comes from the concept of chopping the 'head' (the front end) off the 'body' (the back end, i.e. the content repository). A headless CMS remains with an interface to add content and a RESTful API (JSON, XML) to deliver content wherever you need it.
A headless CMS has only one focus: storing and delivering structured content.
Key advantages of headless
A headless CMS offers a number of advantages and benefits. It is platform-independent, so content will translate automatically across devices.
Keeping front end and back end separated means content insertion and update are easy and accessible to non-developers.
Changes can be saved and deployed to the site all at once after approval, meaning there is no disruption to your live site.
