    It's maybe not famous for being a headless CMS but it definitely can be a headless CMS. So i think its a valid alternative.

    Although there are ways to emulate a RESTful API with plugins, Wordpress is not designed as an API-centric CMS. It comes with its own functions to output and work with the data, instead of a RESTful API logic.

    I prefer using graphql APIs when dealing with application content. Graphcms is based on graphql and even has write mutations, but contentful only has rest apis with a graphql wrapper around them.
