Can Kentico 11's API be utilized as extensively as Kentico Cloud?

Joshua Aggas asked on August 22, 2018 17:16

We are currently utilizing Kentico 11 for our website. We just reupped our support for Kentico 11 so we don't have any current plans to make any moves.

However, I'm really impressed by the headless CMS approach that Kentico Cloud encourages. My question is, can Kentico 11 api be utilized in a way where I can use Kentico 11 as a purely Content Management System and build an Angular application that will utilize Kentico's built in API.

Or is the only way to do a headless CMS project (using Angular and Kentico) is to purchase a Kentico Cloud account?

Well, you can use web api in Kentico 11 right now. You might as well create external Web API apps (using or not Kentico API there if you need it) and call it from Angular. One of the approached we've adapted is to create modules in Kentico to manage data in external DB and have a separate web api 2 app to serve it - so our angular running in kentico calls those external APIs to get a data from other DB. It really depends on you situation and what you are trying to achieve.
