The most powerful and flexible open-source headless cms.

We took the inspiration from WordPress plugin system (hooks and actions) and have built a completely new hook-based core for our backend and admin that is highly extendable and pluggable.

Authoring experience is based on Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) and OneDrive and allows content creators to structure and organize their content in a familiar way.

We are strongly opinionated! Typescript!

  • Self-hosted - know where your data is stored!
  • Backend - Node.js, TypeORM, Express
  • Admin - React, Fluent UI
  • Databases - TypeORM (SQLite, Postgres, MySQL, MariaDB), File Storage - file system, AWS S3
  • Customizable - Same as WordPress you are able to extend any part of Admin or Backend by just using hooks. Furthermore, you can create custom functionalities in a no time!
