What is Headless WordPress

Headless WordPress

Headless WordPress refers to the practice of using WordPress as a content management system (CMS) but not using its front-end display capabilities. Instead of using WordPress to generate the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that is sent to a visitor’s web browser, the WordPress CMS is used to store and manage content and the content is then accessed via an API (Application Programming Interface). The front end of the website is built using a separate framework, such as React or Angular, and the content is fetched from the WordPress API and displayed in the front end.

Headless WordPress allows developers to have more flexibility and control over the front end of a website, while still using the powerful content management features of WordPress. It is particularly useful for building websites that need to be highly performant, or for building mobile or progressive web apps that need to access the content from WordPress.
