Ghost vs Strapi: What are the differences?
Ghost: Just a blogging platform. Ghost is a platform dedicated to one thing: Publishing. It's beautifully designed, completely customisable and completely Open Source. Ghost allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even fun to do; Strapi: *An open-source Headless-CMS *. It is an open source Node.js Headless CMS to easily build customisable APIs. It lets you manage your content and distribute it anywhere. It allows you to securely and privately serve your database of choice from your hosting and server of choice.
Ghost and Strapi belong to "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" category of the tech stack.
Ghost and Strapi are both open source tools. Ghost with 30.6K GitHub stars and 6.62K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Strapi with 16.4K GitHub stars and 1.87K GitHub forks.
So many choices for CMSs these days. So then what do you choose if speed, security and customization are key? Headless for one. Consuming your own APIs for content is absolute key. It makes designing pages in the front-end a breeze. Leaving Ghost and Cockpit. If I then looked at the footprint and impact on server load, Cockpit definitely wins that battle.
