New Feature: Headless

 

The Episerver Digital Experience Cloud now has a new headless API for collecting and updating content. This makes it possible to use Episerver CMS with a headless approach. Content can be published on mobile and web applications, for example, without losing Episerver’s powerful content management capabilities.

 

  • Build hybrid applications that combine Episerver’s content delivery system with your own channels, such as apps, digital signage, speech interfaces, and point-of-sale.
  • The robust, REST-based API makes it easy to create your own integrations, even for applications that are not based on HTML.
  • Support entirely headless applications, with the content delivery system completely decoupled from Episerver CMS, while keeping capabilities for project management, collaboration and editing.
