The CMS world goes through a revolution during which it reinvents itself every few years.
Currently, the latest trend is the so-called ‘headless’ CMS, which completely separates the management of content from its presentation.
As a result, a question arises from website owners and web developers: do we need a headless CMS?
Headless CMS offer many advantages compared to traditional CMS, but the added value is also dependent on the context, the number of channels, and what you are trying to achieve with your content.
In one of our projects, we followed a headless approach and learned a lot from it.
Today, we would like to share our learnings with you and hopefully, this will help you decide which direction is best for your future web project.
What are the advantages of a headless CMS?
A headless CMS differs from a traditional one, often described as ‘monolithic’ CMS.
In a headless fashion, the content and presentation layer of the website are completely separated.
Moreover, the presentation is outside of the responsibility of the CMS and must be implemented elsewhere.
