A headless CMS allows content creators to manage their content through a familiar admin interface and providing the content via API endpoints, allowing developers to implement a fully customized front-end experience using reusable components and a modern framework as React.

A core feature of Gatsby is its ability to load data from anywhere (GraphQL endpoint in our example). This is what makes Gatsby more powerful than any other static site generators that are limited to only loading content from Markdown files.
