Any recommendation for an inexpensive headless CMS?

I find Contentful too expensive.

Try running https://strapi.io on cheap hosting. 🙂

I haven't used it but I've heard of this: https://www.zesty.io/

I'm using Ghost, hooked up to my Gatsby blog. https://ghost.org/

Oh I've got Gatsby running on my small VPS, along with many other sites.

I mean Ghost is running on my VPS and Gatsby is running on Netlify. @marckohlbrugge you should really make an edit or delete button. 🙏🏻

Does ghost support server-rendering comments?

My buddy is working on one that provides an API on top of Google Drive and can export a Doc to Markdown, https://droplo.io/

Ghost is solid, especially if you want the front-end written for you. I wrote a post recently about how to hook it up to a $5 Digital Ocean Droplet: https://blog.stephsmith.io/setting-up-blog-with-ghost-and-digital-ocean-droplet/. With Ghost you can design your own themes as well, however I haven't tried that.

If you want a truly headless CMS, I tried Butter (https://buttercms.com). They have good docs and really easy to set up (or at least it was with Node).
