What are your thoughts on strapi.js?

tngeene profile image Ted Ngeene ・1 min read

I recently came across strapi.js. They describe themselves as, "the next-gen headless CMS, open-source, javascript, enabling content-rich experiences to be created, managed and exposed to any digital device."
So I went ahead and bootstrapped a simple blog application. From the looks of things, it seems like a pretty decent resource.
To anyone that has used Strapi before, would you recommend it? which customizations does it offer? features like extending the user models, authentication, scalability, ease of hosting? How does it fair security-wise? What tips would you give to a beginner learning the CMS?

Absolutely recommended πŸš€
*It offers plugins, unlimited customizations.
*You can use any provider to authenticate, including AWS conigto, Auth0, etc.
*I would say, unlimited scalability! All depends how you decide to architecture your software.

For me products like Strapi make only sense to use if they offer a managed cloud solution where they host Strapi for me, because I don't want to manage servers by myself. Sadly they have no hosted plans.

πŸ˜‚ totally feel you. Though for RAD, it seems like a handy resource.

First I wanna say that I love Strapi. But I recommend Directus over Strapi because of his simplicity and compatability (supports PHP and Node.js)

Haven't heard directus before. Will have to look into it. Thanks for the recommendation.
