API Framework / Headless CMS Made easy (and free)

Honestly this is by far the easiest solution for jumping into the headless CMS world and even better as an API framework to power whatever your needs are; Web, Mobile, Desktop, IOT, and even a smart toaster! The Strapi team is great and works hard to release feature and fix bugs as fast as they can.

Pros

Strapi is extremely easy to setup Simple database configuration with many choices (Mongo, Postgres, and MySQL) Simple to modify the backend code Getting up and running from zero to a complete API with data in as little as 10 to 20 minutes

Cons

I do think that more time needs to be spent on building a solid foundation (which the Strapi team are working on) More time needs to be spent testing bugs for all usecases (or some automation for the frontend testing needs to be implemented and I believe that is being done right now) While not an issue with the software itself, I do think that services like Heroku need to be put on the backburner and not pushed as heavily as Strapi is a service, Heroku and other "serverless" environments are not built to handle complex applications. At the same time more user involvment with Pull Requests are something that would greatly help development and bug fixing.

API builder for any size of project

We used Strapi as a beta and did not like it but came back after 2 years and figured out it actually became a viable option for projects and we we implemented it started to love it. Now three years later we became very confident on the functionality it offers. Still keeping an eye out for options though.

Pros

The flexibility of Strapi is great and it save us a ton of time. In the past we created our own backend APIs and it was a tedious task. Now with Strapi we can skip to the important parts where we can start building the business login of websites and apps rather then spending time on the backend. Content builder like Dynamic Zone which lets you structure content any way you need is something which every CMS should have present!

Cons

It is not easy to setup and the switch from traditional CMS to headless CMS can be difficult to make for some people. Also even though it is V4 it still is not fully matured and has bugs so you never know what will be broken or not be working 100%.

Reasons for choosing Strapi

It was totally new technology stack and I wanted to try it out.

Reasons for switching to Strapi

We wanted to try something more programer agnostic and modern.

We needed more freedom in our CMS.

We needed an headless solution which we could modify for our need.
