Payload raises $4.7M for its developer-first headless CMS

Instead of building another no-code CMS, the team went in the exact opposite direction and built something more akin to a framework than “just” a pure headless CMS. To get started, developers describe their configuration for Payload in TypeScript and the service creates a Mongo database, sets up REST and GraphQL APIs, handles file storage, authentication and access control, and, of course, creates the admin UI, which defaults to a clean, minimalist look.
