With all these frameworks out there, how do you handle the CMS part? How is the data entered for front end display? Clients want to update their sites often. Can something like Wordpress rest API be used to feed data to a site built in these frameworks? Any basic insight Into this would be appreciated or links to articles how this works from a CMS perspective.
but in reality, why use React if you have Wordpress?
Just wondering how the CMS aspect is handled with these frameworks.
I would think as long as your CMS can provide the front end with JSON data, an Angular app would work easily with it.
CMS is mostly a backend operation, driven by databases. If you have something in Wordpress, you could use their rest api, as opposed to the usual templating format.
Frontend frameworks like React and Angular handle the GUI, and that's it. Passing data back in forth is, almost exclusively, done with Ajax requests/responses (ie. passing JSON data back and forth).
I hate wordpress, but why would you redo all the CMS with react or whatever?
You can instead keep the godamned wordpress to manage the content and then consume the API on the frontend for the public website.
