If using Statamic, there are multiple options to build your frontend: Antlers or Blade if you like those. You want to run Statamic headless? In that case, feel free to use REST, GraphQL or to write your own API. Even if that is not enough, you can make use of the Statamic Site Generator to host your website via CDN.
