Directus vs Strapi: What are the differences?
Directus: Free and Open-Source Headless CMS. Let's say you're planning on managing content for a website, native app, and widget. Instead of using a CMS that's baked into the website client, it makes more sense to decouple your content entirely and access it through an API or SDK. That's a headless CMS. That's Directus; Strapi: *An open-source Headless-CMS *. It is an open source Node.js Headless CMS to easily build customisable APIs. It lets you manage your content and distribute it anywhere. It allows you to securely and privately serve your database of choice from your hosting and server of choice.
Directus and Strapi can be categorized as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.
Directus and Strapi are both open source tools. It seems that Strapi with 16.4K GitHub stars and 1.87K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Directus with 4.79K GitHub stars and 483 GitHub forks.
