22 Headless CMS To Check Out

A simple explanation: Headless Cms is the backend (database and core files) decoupled (disconnected) from the Frontend.
In other words, there is no UI.

So how do you use it?
Since there is no template or theme used, the content storage and delivery are managed by a separate platform or technology using an API.

I did not list popular Headless CMS such as Gatsby JS + WordPress.
This is a setup that you must manually create.

In addition, the list below does not include CMS’s that are costly enterprise focused solutions.
