The All-New Directus 7
Future-Proof Headless CMS

The Directus 7 App has been rebuilt from the ground-up in Vue.js and decoupled from our new "versionless" API. Both can easily be customized and extended to suit your project's needs.
Directus is an open-source suite of software for managing content in projects of any size. Instances of the Directus API allow you to easily connect SQL database content anywhere (websites, native apps, wearables, IoT devices, kiosks, etc) while the Directus App allows non-technical users to intuitively manage that content. You can easily install a build of the full Directus Suite which includes the App, API, and all dependencies.
- No Assumptions. That’s our motto, and we mean it. It’s your content, your workflow, your stack, your servers, and your database – Directus stays out of the way.
- Pure, decoupled content. Directus stores all your data unaltered, in SQL databases designed by you. Connect to your data from anywhere everywhere.
- Directus is a simple toolkit, not a one-size-fits-all behemoth. Every aspect of the framework can be tailored, extended, or even bypassed if needed. Truly limitless.
- Full internationalization. Manage multilingual content in as many languages as your project needs. And for international teams, the Directus App itself supports translations.
