Introducing the Strapi hosted playground for anyone. Try Strapi in 2 minutes with actual data without needing to install anything on your machine.
February 18, 2020
Every month for the last 3 years, thousands of people download Strapi to figure out if it’s a good fit for their next websites, mobile apps, custom digital projects. The installation is super easy and with 1 command you can spin up a clean version of Strapi on your laptop.

That being said, some of you wished for a hosted version of Strapi with sample data but without having to install anything on your machine. We’ve heard you loud and clear.
Today, we’re thrilled to introduce the first version of Strapi hosted trials available to everyone.
Both developers and content managers can now request instantaneous access to a dedicated instance that they can modify at their convenience. Each trial environment provides a Strapi admin panel based on our demo application called Foodadvisor but does not include its frontend for now. We’re thinking about adding frontend starter options in a v2 later this year.
Note that each instance is available for 1 hour until it gets recycled for other users. If you’re looking to try out Strapi for a longer period of time we invite you to download Strapi and use either the Strapi React starter or the Strapi Gatsby starter. We plan on releasing the next ones (Next.js, Nuxt, or Angular) very shortly. Feel free to add a comment to let us know which ones you would like us to release next!
