What is CMS for Angular?


View image: source

Angular is a known TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. This platform is used to build web and mobile applications.

Content management systems (CMS) are useful to create, edit, publish, and manage content. So, a CMS for Angular would be an application that helps Angular users create, edit, or publish Angular content.

Since the integration of CMS to the build-up of web pages or development, it has become quite easy to update web content without doing things the usual manual wayof updating web pages via HTML development and moving content and file through protocols on the internet. The two ways to make CMS possible in Angular are either traditionally or in headless form.

Traditional Angular CMS

Traditional Angular CMS categorizes everything patterning content database through to the presentation layer of the web/application. It is strictly linked between the front end and back end, and content is managed, created, and stored the same way as every digital resource on the database.

This implies that the creation of the content for the website is done on the same system. As content is created through editors, they are also served at once, and end-users can have access to them.

In most cases, a traditional CMS could be used for private purposes, when one owns a private business or enterprise. One can manage and serve content traditionally when there is no need to share content with other digital properties.

Traditional CMS usually encounters fewer technical barriers and one can easily manage all content on the go. But in some cases, there could be issues of poor scaling or flexibility, or the demand for strictly skilled CMS developers.

Headless CMS

Headless CMS should be used mostly in JavaScript frameworks like Angular, and in cases where there is a need to deploy content across multiple platforms.

The headless CMS does not affect the front end of the website. It is strictly concerned with the creation of content and serving it via an application programming interface.

In traditional cases, the front end and back end are managed at the same point, but through headless CMS only content management is carried out. This makes room for flexibility and for the unique forms of content presentation across various platforms, made possible through API. It is headless because there is no connection between the front end and back end.


In present times, Angular, as a web app framework of JavaScript, is used via headless CMS. This increases flexibility in content management.
