    Looks nice, but it appears tied to its templating system which kind of kills its utility to me. I want a headless CMS that I can use to manage content for any templating system I want to switch it to.

      One of the beautiful things about 3.0 is that you can use it as a headless CMS:


      Instead of using Kirby's front-end templates, you can use it to generate a JSON API that can be consumed by a static front-end like Gatsby or Next.js.

      This has been always possible with kirby.

      Working with kirby is very much like if you were working with nosql db where every record by default is also URL/route endpoint (it does not have to be you can have all routing you want).

      You don't have to output HTML. Kirby does not enforce templating engine so you can straight up output json on those routes.

      But there might be even better ways
