But, if it's the developer experience that you're struggling with, you might wanna try Payload - as we have a Blocks field type that would be perfect for what you're looking to do. You're right in that many other headless CMS lack these types of features.
Open-source serverless enterprise CMS. Includes a headless CMS, page builder, form builder, and file manager. Easy to customize and expand. Deploys to AWS.

Appwrite - The open-source backend cloud platform. Add Auth, Databases, Functions, and Storage to your product and build any application at any scale while using your preferred coding languages and tools.
