How is a headless platform different from a decoupled platform?

There are a number of differences between headless and decoupled platforms; these include:

  1. Flexible content models that allow you to describe your data in the headless platforms.
  2. Advanced APIs that can use query languages for APIs like GraphQL.
  3. Headless platforms are designed to deliver content quickly and efficiently without any overhead.
  4. Decoupled platforms are generally connected to a display layer templating language for building user interfaces.
  5. Headless platforms may not have any display of layer templating. Hybrid platforms like Core dna do still offer templating languages and admin interfaces for the convenience of admins.
  6. A high degree of customization & flexibility for developers in the headless platform.
