    A headless one is responsible only for data management and providing an API for other applications to show this data. When talking about headless CMS, Strapi or Sanity comes to my mind first, but there are many more.
  • I need recommendations for creating an API. Start from scratch, or are there projects I can build from?

    I initially looked into CMS's like Strapi and Directus to possibly handle my admin UI + API all at once. I haven't found anything that looks like it can do this yet, but I'd be very happy to be proven wrong. I would prefer it to be based in .NET or Node.js since I am more familiar with those, but there's no reason I couldn't do PHP either.

  • Pros and cons of off-the-shelf solutions for creating a control panel
    6 projects | /r/reactjs | 13 Jul 2023
    - We want a solution that creates CRUD (create, read, update, delete) quickly and requires minimal effort. - We want to be able to create some sort of complex interface if the task requires it. - We make cool, beautiful projects, so we want a visually pleasing solution. - We want the solution to be independent of the language on the back-end, because, for example, we started with PHP, Laravel, but over time node.js, Go appeared in the stack. In short, we want fast, beautiful and custom. We've had time to poke at various off-the-shelf solutions that we've been advised. They're good, but: - they are created specifically for some frameworks / languages like laravel, node.js - they can only generate CRUDs with a rigidly defined structure, where you can't implement or customize anything of your own. - they can't be styled Here's what we've been looking at Control Panels for Laravel: Not a very pretty solution in our opinion. And the promo page has nice screenshots, not the demo "well such". Not particularly functional, but neatly done They have a beautiful, but rigidly set strutkrua, you can not create castmon interfaces, stylize them. Just do CRUD and that's it. And it's paid Analog to Nova, with essentially the same problems. For node.js: Nice promo, and the demo is way behind As standalone dashboards: Very cool, but for other purposes. It's more of an entity builder with an interface and API Similarly, it's an entity builder with an interface and API This is a backend builder. is purely for php, you can't customize styles, you can't create your own interfaces. It is possible to create only tables and forms by template, and we remember that we want flexibility, independence from the language and the ability to create their own interfaces and customize them This is also more of a backend builder. Direct competitors: probably the best solution that is currently on the market, they have been developing for a long time, they are our favorite. To the disadvantages we considered the following points: quite an old project, and somewhere the technology is already outdated, unsympathetic interface, old UI libraries. Huge documentation, it’s simply to create CRUD but hard to work without immersion. After all this there is only one conclusion: you need to do it yourself....
  • Looking for some advice! Currently working in wordpress to built some sites for clients. Looking to make a change and reading up on next.js and seems like it could be a great solution but is there a CMS that is comparable to Wordpress from a client making content updates standpoint?

    I don’t recommend using Wordpress as a Headless CMS because eventually you will have maintain and update plugins and more. If you know how to code, I would recommend PayloadCMS. My website is currently built with Next.js and Strapi. But I am planning to move to PayloadCMS in the near future. Strapi is good if you prefer no-code. PayloadCMS in case you know how to code with Typescript and Node.js.
