Headless CMS Article

This was sent in Issue #21 of Squirrel Notes on January 3, 2019.

I read with interest this CMSWire article by Kaya Ismail:

24 Headless CMS That Should Be On Your Radar in 2019

He does a nice job of differentiating “headless” from “decoupled,” saying of the latter:

[a decoupled CMS] has a head, it’s just decoupled from it, allowing the organization to draft in other front-end tools on an ad-hoc basis.

The list of 24 reflects that the line gets blurrier as some traditional vendors add headless subsystems and others just re-assert the competency of their existing APIs. There are systems in the list that are not “pure” headless (dotCMS, Core dna, Evoq), and their inclusion begs the question of whether we should have included others by that same yardstick (Episerver, Sitecore, etc.).

I discussed this a while back.

The State of the Headless CMS Market

I think we’re rapidly approaching an inflection point where everything will be “headless optional.”
