I found this article a good read and relevant to my recent research into choosing a CMS.

scotch.io - The Future of Websites - Headless CMSs

And it mentions some specific sites to try out. It’s news to me that Wordpress can go headless now - it has an API so you can build your frontend but use their CMS editor.

This article discusses types of CMS such as

  • headless
  • decoupled
  • hybrid

For more details of the CMS types, I recommend this article: coredna.com - Headless vs Decoupled CMS
