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.

A great headless cms for your MVP

I became a regular user. There are few projects in which I do not use strapi, as it proves to be a rapid development helping in the evaluation of the features.

Pros

It is open-source. It is Restifull but has support for GraphQL It provides the Playground to build and test your queries and mutations. Docker support. All data is yours, that is, you have full control over your database. The project receives frequent investments from large companies. Extremely easy and quick to start a project.

Cons

Relationships in the database are still a critical and sometimes problematic point. It has no migrations of data. There is no 2FA. It does not delete unnecessary tables and columns from the database. Typescript is not supported.

Reasons for Choosing Strapi

With the strapi the data is mine.

Good Headless CMS although not the best

Pros

Strapi is written on React, which makes it very attractive for the community of JS developers, the application is easy to develop and with a simple and functional UI.

Cons

The UI provides a too simplistic UI view but separates the users of the app from the users to connect to the API, which is quite confusing, in addition, to have a three roles limit which makes the app extremely unattractive to force the user if the want to growth the will have to pay for a monthly subscription.
