Directus is a free and open-source data platform for headless content management. It can be installed on top of any new or existing SQL database, instantly providing a dynamic API (REST+GraphQL) and accompanying App for managing content. Built entirely in TypeScript (in Node and Vue), Directus is completely modular and end-to-end extensible... with absolutely no paywalls or artificial limitations.
Modern and intuitive, the Directus App enables no-code data discovery, allowing for even the most non-technical users to view, author, and manage your raw database content. Our performant and flexible API is able to adapt to any relational schema, and includes rule-based permissions, event/web hooks, custom endpoints, numerous auth options, configurable storage adapters, and much more.
Current database support includes: PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQLite, MS-SQL Server, OracleDB, MariaDB, and variants such as AWS Aurora/Redshift or Google Cloud Platform SQL.

Directus requires NodeJS 10+. Create a new project with our simple CLI tool:
npm init directus-project my-project
Or using yarn:
yarn create directus-project my-project
The above command will create a directory with your project name, then walk you through the database configuration and creation of your first admin user.
