What is Directus?

Let's say you're planning on managing content for a website, native app, and widget. Instead of using a CMS that's baked into the website client, it makes more sense to decouple your content entirely and access it through an API or SDK. That's a headless CMS. That's Directus.
Directus is a tool in the Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS category of a tech stack.
Directus is an open source tool with 6.8K GitHub stars and 646 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Directus's open source repository on GitHub
