I think creating a simple non CRUD app with static content is better structured without a backend API. If you can structure everything on the frontend you can make your app smaller and perhaps more performant and easier to deploy.
I have seen this frontend/backend API paradigm done on every project and it does not make sense to me for simple static apps.
