Get ready to say goodbye to the limitations of traditional content management system (CMS) platforms. At Hyphen, we’re embracing the future of web development with a shift in our tech stack. We’re waving goodbye to WordPress and diving headfirst (pun intended) into the world of headless CMS with Strapi.

What exactly is a headless CMS?

Imagine a CMS where the “content” (think blog posts, product descriptions, images) exists entirely separate from the way it’s displayed (the website design, layout, etc.). That’s the magic of headless! It’s like having a giant, organized brain (the back-end) feeding information to a chameleon-like front-end that can adapt to any design or platform.

While traditional CMS platforms like WordPress have served us well, they’re starting to feel like a pair of comfortable yet slightly restrictive shoes.

Here’s why we’re excited about working with headless CMS:

Ultimate Customization: Traditional CMS platforms often tie front-end templates with the back-end content. Headless CMS allows for complete creative freedom in crafting the front-end experience, including making sure content is structured the way we want for accessibility.

Centralized Content: Adding content to different platforms (website, mobile app, etc.) often requires managing it in separate silos within a traditional CMS. Headless CMS provides a central hub that can be easily distribute content across various platforms.

Better User Experience: Traditional CMS platforms can become bogged down with complex plugins and bloated code, leading to slower loading times. Headless CMS architecture promotes a streamlined and lightweight approach, resulting in a faster and more responsive user experience.

Future-Proofing: The decoupled architecture means content updates won’t require messy code changes, making your website resilient to future trends. New design ideas? No problem! Just update the front-end without impacting your valuable content.

We’re excited to unlock a new level of flexibility and performance for web projects with Strapi. But is headless the right choice for your website? Here’s what a client has to say about their Strapi-powered website:
