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!
Our comprehensive documentation is written in markdown and hosted within dedicated GitHub repositories for easy collaboration and version tracking. Feel free to send us some pull-requests!Documentation on GitHub
“At its core, Directus is a customer-friendly database GUI & API – mirroring the schema directly, it offers complete control over architecture and optimizations. It's this decoupled approach that allows for the authoring of application-agnostic content that can be used anywhere.”
