A headless CMS that manages your content, not your workflow.
Directus is an API-driven content management framework for custom databases. It decouples content for use in apps, websites, or any other data-driven projects.
Built around three key concepts... with the added bonus of alliteration.
Directus manages your content with intuitive interfaces that require no training. Pulling everything directly from your database schema, setup is as easy as entering your credentials. More Info »
Nothing is more important than keeping your data safe. That’s why Directus follows best-practices for authentication and access-control, ensuring users only have access to the data you allow.
For startups and growing enterprises alike, investing in an ecosystem is nerve-racking when you don't know what the future holds. Fully decoupled and extensible, you’ll never outgrow your CMS again.
Why a “Headless” CMS?
Content should be created and managed independently from where it's used
Let's say you're planning on managing content for a website, native app, and kiosk. 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.
Workflow & Organization
CMS stands for Content Management System. When did it become synonymous with platforms that maintain project templates, application logic, development workflow, and everything else? Directus gets out of the way and let's you build projects however you'd like. It only manages... content.
Directus was built with modular user-interfaces for editing different types of content. Want to build a WYSIWYG, JSON, or Markdown editor? Have an idea for a map interface? We've got Hosted credits to give away and are looking for developers to create some new UIs.
