## Optimizely headless solution

In a _headless_ solution, the website presentation layer is decoupled from the back-end content management and e-commerce functionality. This is useful, for example, when pulling content data into other systems, making it accessible for display on any output device.

The [Optimizely Content Delivery API](🔗) is a flexible and unified API for content delivery across all types of managed content. It supports Optimizely Content Management System (CMS) content types, and Optimizely Customized Commerce content types like catalog nodes, products, variants, and pricing.

The Content Delivery API also supports rendering of forms built with Optimizely Forms, for example, in single-page application sites built with React or Vue.

For samples sites and source code, see the [Content Delivery JS SDK repository](🔗) repository on GitHub.

## Cloudflare headless page rules

Cloudflare does not automatically cache .json results. Rules allow responses from endpoints in ContentDeliveryApi (CD) & ContentDeliveryApi.Search (CD.Search) to be cached for clients. The pattern covers all endpoints in CD. The pattern for those new rules is narrowed down in scope so that they only cover endpoints in CD and CD.Search.

Clients may use accept-language in their request for content, so the page rule should also consider language.
