Strapi has turned out to be a great choice so far: technical setup was really quick, and in a few days we were able to have a drafted site up & running, leveraging Strapi main functionalities.

Anybody can download Strapi and run it on their own server. You can then develop your front end, fetch content in your mobile app using the Strapi API and more.

Authentication, database management and security have always been blockers to creating more extensive APIs. Since using Strapi I don’t have any of these concerns and am now free to develop features without worrying about repeating the basics.

Just think of the code you would have to write just for a REST API with relationships, JWT authentication, roles, error handling and so much more. We do it all here from a GUI. There are pros and cons to using a CMS vs custom code, but Strapi is also easy to customize if needed. Awesome technology.
