Brutal CMS is comprised of Modules, which are contained within a administration application called "BOS" (Base Operating System). Modules act like sub-applications that allow management of content data based on CSV or XML files (or both).
Modules include "views", which pulls the content data from that module. These views can be integrated into a front-end application or website to render content. This is similar to a headless CMS architecture, but it's much more "raw" and basic than working with an API.
More information will be made available in the documentation (Reference Guides), once available.
