Gatsby and headless CMS

Headless CMSs are the latest requirement for developers who work on Jamstack-based web experiences.

A headless CMS disconnects the front-end from the back-end. Through an API, you then have the opportunity to deliver all kinds of awesome content to all types of websites, apps, and devices.

When you work with Gatsby, adding a headless CMS to your tech stack allows you to build a seamless content platform while minimizing development and maximizing flexibility.


Selecting a headless CMS for Gatsby

But how do you find a headless CMS that easily integrates with Gatsby? This is easier said than done. There are countless headless CMSs available, and due to complicated APIs, unclear documentation, and a lack of support, finding the right CMS is often a challenge.

That’s why we advise you to first map the requirements of your headless CMS. Focus on your desired framework (in this case: Gatsby) and select the features that you need from this solution.
