Strapi is an open-source headless CMS built with React.js.
Thanks to virtual DOM, React websites are fast despite massive dynamic content.
Strapi is powered by a modern technology stack using Node.js – it's fast. Fast. Plus, it can deliver your content with GraphQL.
From an idea to a project and from a project to a final product, we use Strapi for seamless integration with React/React Native through its GraphQL plugin.

Fetch data faster and more efficiently while improving the overall performance of your React application.
Both were created to solve the problems of managing structured content easily and understandably. They both respond to what Strapi wants to achieve.
Performance has an impact on the whole project, from user engagement or content editor comfort to Google ranking.
Components are the building blocks of any React application; this is why you'll find many of these in them.
The benefit of this approach is that you end up doing less duplicate work by managing the components rather than managing duplicate content across different pages. This concept has become a real success.
How can we benefit from this approach at the content management level?
React is impressive not only because it's blazing fast but also, most notably, for its component-based architecture. React unleashes all its power when using a CMS mainly because of this architecture, since the developer will design and develop reusable components. Therefore, growing and maintaining the codebase is more accessible since no content is hard-coded. This is how we built Foodadvisor, our official demo website.
