Headless Content Management System
A headless content management system, or headless CMS, is a back-end-only content management system. It acts primarily as a content repository. Such a CMS makes content accessible via an API for display on any device, without a built-in front-end or presentation layer. The fact that content is decoupled from presentation is one of the main advantages of a headless system. Since the front end has been chopped off from the body, such a system is referred to as "headless."
