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.

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.
