Ghost vs Structr: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ghost as "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. On the other hand, Structr is detailed as "Award-winning Open-Source Data CMS based on Neo4j". Structr (pronounce it like 'structure') is a Java framework for mobile and web applications based on the graph database Neo4j. It was designed to simplify the creation of complex graph database applications by providing a comprehensive Java API and a set of features common to most use cases. This enables developers to build a sophisticated web or mobile app based on Neo4j within hours.

Ghost and Structr can be categorized as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.

Ghost and Structr are both open source tools. Ghost with 30.3K GitHub stars and 6.55K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Structr with 555 GitHub stars and 129 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.
