What is Headless CMS?

At Polleni we work solely using Headless CMS technology. Here's why.

By Rog HowPosted in Ideas

A Headless CMS is essentially a content store, and something we use for our website development at Polleni. Headless CMS (Content Management System) holds only the text and images of your website, and has nothing to do with how the website design or how the website looks.

The viewable part of the website, or ‘front-end’ is separate from the CMS, and is populated from the CMS using an API (application programming interface). In plain English this means that the content is pushed to the front-end when there is a change, but otherwise the front-end is static in between changes. 

The Headless approach delivers very fast load times for websites, as the page is just loading a simple static file and doesn’t need to pull any other information to render a page.

Headless CMS’s are also great if the content may need to be used in another place, like a web application. It also promotes an agile way of working as designers, developers and content creators can all work simultaneously on we projects projects.

That’s why at Polleni we work solely using Headless CMS technology for all our brochure websites, lead-generating websites and ecommerce websites too.
