What is a headless CMS?

As a headless platform, we let you choose the device you want to deliver your content to.

A headless platform is front-end agnostic. It helps you present your content on any device – a mobile phone, a tablet, a laptop, a smartwatch, and so on.

The way content looks to your audience doesn’t depend on a built into the CMS front end, as is the case with traditional content management systems like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal.

In a way, we can say that a headless CMS is reactive. It allows you to produce and save your content in the back end, which then sits there, waiting for some process (mobile device, computer, smartphone) to ask for it via API calls, or receive a push notification from our Queue service.

The following chart is a visual representation of the idea behind a headless CMS:
