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. Email us to learn more!
We've written comprehensive documentation for Directus and its API endpoints. Better yet, all our docs are written in markdown and hosted within a dedicated GitHub repository for easy collaboration and version tracking – so feel free to send us some pull-requests!Documentation on GitHub
“At its core, Directus is purely a customer-friendly database GUI. Add tables and fields, create relationships, change data-types, or adjust default values – then just refresh Directus and your CMS has been instantly tailored to your application. The beauty is in its simplicity.”
