This item was not updated in last three versions of the Radar. Should it have appeared in one of the more recent editions, there is a good chance it remains pertinent. However, if the item dates back further, its relevance may have diminished and our current evaluation could vary. Regrettably, our capacity to consistently revisit items from past Radar editions is limited.

Strapi is a headless CMS built with Javascript on Node.js. Its data-centered approach offers great flexibility for many use cases by integrating with the available APIs.

Strapi's API comes in a RESTful and GraphQL variant. Both perfectly support the API-first design approach.

Ever since the stable release version 3.0.0 from mid-2020, the CMS reached market maturity and offers a good choice for scalable headless CMSs. As of the 3.6 release in April 2021, Strapi features full internationalization support, making it a viable candidate to be evaluated toe to toe with solutions like Drupal.

At AOE we are evaluating Strapi for various projects, appreciating its straightforward installation, setup, and use by editors in lieu of more heavy-weight solutions used in the past.
