Directus vs PulseCMS: What are the differences?
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; PulseCMS: The CMS for web professionals. Pulse CMS is the easiest way to build and deploy a responsive, content managed website. Since it's a flat file CMS there is no complicated database setup, just copy it to your server and go.
Directus and PulseCMS can be primarily classified as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.
Directus is an open source tool with 4.68K GitHub stars and 464 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Directus's open source repository on GitHub.
