You may have heard the terms “Headless CMS” and “Decoupled front-ends” floating around the industry if you are involved in web and marketing. Today, we are going to take a look at why Drupal should be considered as an option for your headless content management system (CMS).
Drupal is a powerful, open-source content management system that is well-suited for use as a headless CMS. A headless CMS refers to a content management system where the front-end is decoupled from the back-end, allowing for greater flexibility and scalability.
