Cockpit vs Directus: What are the differences?

What is Cockpit? Add content management functionality to any site - plug & play CMS. An API-driven CMS without forcing you to make compromises in how you implement your site. The CMS for developers. Manage content like collections, regions, forms and galleries which you can reuse anywhere on your website.

What is Directus? Free and Open-Source Headless CMS. 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.
