Craft vs Directus: What are the differences?

Developers describe Craft as "A CMS built to do one thing and do it well: manage content". Craft is a content management system (CMS) that’s laser-focused on doing one thing really, really well: managing content. On the other hand, Directus is detailed as "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.

Craft and Directus can be categorized as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.

"Quick bespoke CMS" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Craft, while over 3 developers mention "Open Source" as the leading cause for choosing Directus.

Directus is an open source tool with 4.62K GitHub stars and 461 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Directus's open source repository on GitHub.
