So, what makes Directus so special?
Freedom to Innovate
Choose the libraries, tools, and stack that best suit your project. Directus lets you build one-of-a-kind experiences.
Self-Hosted or Cloud
Directus is completely free & open-source when self-hosted — or quickly spin up managed instances on our Cloud platform.
All Platforms & Devices
Our headless approach lets you build websites, native apps, wearables, kiosks, IoT devices... any data-driven project.
Free & Open-Source
That's right! Completely free, premium software, with no feature limitations or licenses, for personal or commercial use.
Pure SQL Content
Directus mirrors exactly what's in your SQL database. No proprietary data-model or content storage — you're in charge.
Whitelabel with your Brand
Add your logo and custom theme to tailor the Admin App to match your company's identity. All Directus branding is optional.
Okay, well what types of projects can Directus manage? The short answer is... all of them!
How would you like to connect to content?
Directus provides a dynamic API for any new or existing SQL database. Choose between REST or GraphQL endpoints and you'll be knee-deep in JSON before you know it!
If your project application is on the same server as its database, you can remove that last shred of latency and connect directly with SQL queries. Remember, you are in control of the actual database schema – Directus stays out of the way.
Directus can be used as a Standalone Application. Create anything from internal productivity tools to business intelligence platforms. No development required.
