Payload headless CMS Admin panel built with React

Why Payload?

Payload is a CMS that has been designed for developers from the ground up to deliver them what they need to build great digital products. If you know JavaScript, you know Payload. It's a code-first CMS, which allows us to do a lot of things right:

  • Payload gives you everything you need, but then steps back and lets you build what you want in JavaScript or TypeScript - with no unnecessary complexity brought by GUIs. You'll understand how your CMS works because you will have written it exactly how you want it.
  • Bring your own Express server and do whatever you need on top of Payload. Payload doesn't impose anything on you or your app.
  • Completely control the Admin panel by using your own React components. Swap out fields or even entire views with ease.
  • Use your data however and wherever you need thanks to auto-generated, yet fully extensible REST, GraphQL, and Local Node APIs.
