Production and distribution have shifted from the few to the many. We have all become the media, the media has been marginalized and brands are now broadcasters.

Everyone has a story to tell or something to sell. A need to create and connect, post and publish, showcase and share.

  • So, say hello to Strapi! We exist to fuel the world’s creativity and productivity
by unleashing the power of content.
  • So we’ve built the next generation CMS that does exactly that. Across the full lifecycle and the entire stack.
  • It’s open-source. Javascript. Headless. Community first. And free. And will stay that way. Forever.
