What is a Headless CMS?
A headless CMS removes the front-end (the "head") from the CMS, while keeping the interface necessary to add content. With the use of APIs, the content is then delivered to any device or platform while maintaining the correct structure.
That means you can deliver your content anywhere - a website, a mobile app, a smart fridge, smart phone, you name it.
How does Umbraco Heartcore work?
Umbraco Heartcore comes with a set of API endpoints, which enable you to display content from Umbraco to websites, apps, smartwatches, or any other platform of your choosing.
Each project uses the tested and praised Umbraco Backoffice as an editor, repository, and delivery service for content and media.
That sends your content through a Content Delivery Network (CDN) using Cloudflare to ensure speedy delivery of all of your content to those beautiful frontends.
