A collection of terms often used when talking about Jamstack and associated web technologies.

Headless technology

The term "headless" refers to removing the dependency of knowing where data will be displayed and instead just holding the data to be used wherever the developer chooses. This is often used to describe a CMS where content can be entered, held, then where and how that content is displayed is decided separately.
