Directus Reviews & Product Details

Directus Overview

What is Directus?

Directus is an open-source suite of software for managing content in projects of any size. Instances of the Directus API allow you to easily connect SQL database content anywhere (websites, native apps, wearables, IoT devices, kiosks, etc) while the Directus App allows non-technical users to intuitively manage that content. You can easily install a build of the full Directus Suite which includes the App, API, and all dependencies. No Assumptions. That’s our motto, and we mean it. It’s your content, your workflow, your stack, your servers, and your database – Directus stays out of the way. Pure, decoupled content. Directus stores all your data unaltered, in SQL databases designed by you. Connect to your data from anywhere everywhere. Directus is a simple toolkit, not a one-size-fits-all behemoth. Every aspect of the framework can be tailored, extended, or even bypassed if needed. Truly limitless. Full internationalization. Manage multilingual content in as many languages as your project needs. And for international teams, the Directus App itself supports translations.

What do you like best?

We love how easy and flexible Directus is to use as our CMS. We have created a whole system of pages with content, reviews, widgets, and more. It really works well with managing all of our content and adding new pages instantly. Review collected by and hosted on

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can be a tad buggy, plus it is not just an out of the box integration like something with WordPress would be. Wordpress is more flexible with an entire app marketplace, although performance sometimes suffers. Review collected by and hosted on

We built our entire content business on directus. You have to have some sort of technical background in order to set it up and maintain it ongoing. Review collected by and hosted on
