A Headless CMS (Content Management System) is a type of CMS where content management is separated from the presentation layer of the website or web application.
Headless CMC vs Traditional CMS
In a traditional CMS, content management and presentation of the content coexist within the same system. In a Headless CMS, content management is separated from presentation and communication is made through APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). This way, it’s easier to replicate content throughout different platforms and mediums.
Advantages of a Headless CMS
A Headless CMS allows developers the freedom of choice in front-end creation, enabling them to use any framework or technology without being restricted by the limitations of traditional CMS. It also gives content creators the freedom to manage their content without worrying about how it will be presented on different platforms.
Umbraco as a Headless CMS
Umbraco is an open-source CMS built in Microsoft .NET, that provides the ability to create, edit and present content in a flexible and user-friendly way. Umbraco has a robust back-office that allows the creation of "Document Types," which define fields and properties of each type of content to facilitate the creation of contents with complex structures, and guarantee that contents are consistent on the website. Umbraco also has a large community of developers who create additional functionality through plugins and packages, which allows Umbraco to respond to any website or application needs.
Umbraco has a headless version called Umbraco Heartcore, which uses .NET and separates the creation and maintenance of content from the front-end layer, allowing it to feed any type of platform through an API.
Umbraco Heartcore allows the creation and maintenance of content, as well as the creation of relationships between different types of content. It also has a robust API that allows dynamic reception and manipulation of contents.
One of the advantages of Umbraco Heartcore is that it's developed using .NET, making it compatible with Microsoft Azure, which provides a secure and scalable platform.
