Headless CMS


One of the biggest challenges with headless CMS systems is choosing one. The field is wide open, and headless systems have not been around long enough for a clear leader to stand out. Some core feature that headless CMS should have out of the box include

  • Custom fields to enter start times, agendas, photos, descriptions, number of seats available, and other details.
  • Content types so that one could set up an event document type with the aforementioned custom fields plus distinct document types for other purposes including unstructured content pages.
  • A read-write API for migrating content.

The main advantage of Headless CMS is that it’s technology agnostic, meaning the front end website can be built using whatever tools or languages you like. The main disadvantage is that you need to manage two web apps instead of one.
