Difference Between CMS and Headless CMS

Difference Between CMS and Headless CMS

Traditional CMS

Pros

  • A single system supplies the whole of the property.
  • Simple management of all content
  • Utilize themes and templates to exert control over the front-end design.
  • Support from large communities
  • Reduced technical entrance barrier

Cons

  • Produce just website content (the same material cannot be delivered easily on other devices).
  • Scalability is not necessarily an issue
  • Requires CMS-specific developers
  • Flexibility is limited.
  • Maintenance and improvements take more effort and money.

When to Use a Traditional Content Management System

Headless CMS

Pros

  • The content is prepared for delivery to any device.
  • With the headless API, developers can focus on appearance rather than content.
  • Front-end-independent (A headless CMS is unconcerned about the destination of the content or the way it is presented. It just serves it up, enabling developers to use the frameworks and tools of their choice.)
  • Produce content without worrying about being contained in a single system.

Cons

  • There is no preview of the material. (Some systems permit creating a preview integration, although this incurs extra upfront costs.)
  • Additional integration/configuration work upfront
  • Creating a mental image/client

When to Use a Headless Content Management System

  • Websites and web applications use JavaScript frameworks such as React, Angular, or VueJs.
  • Native mobile applications
  • Any setting in which you must simultaneously deliver material to several platforms
  • When creating a static website using a static site generator
