Your partner for Strapi: Portal solutions with Headless CMS

Flexibility from programming to ongoing operation - we advise you on the leading headless CMS!

With our own team specialising in Strapi development, the AM GmbH implements your web projects competently. Our services include a wide range of support and the programming of additional modules, plugins, web applications, PWAs and intranet solutions.

Strapi is a modern content management system (CMS) that differs from traditional CMSs due to its "headless" design. In contrast to conventional CMSs, which often have a fixed connection between the administrative backend and the frontend for displaying content, Strapi offers a detached backend.

Instead of a predefined user interface, Strapi provides a programming interface (API) that can be used to flexibly deliver content to various front ends, such as websites, mobile apps, intranets or other online platforms (including future ones). Strapi was developed on JavaScript and therefore enables efficient and flexible content management and provision. This makes Strapi particularly attractive for companies, as content can be used and managed across multiple platforms.

Strapi uses a range of established modern technologies that make it a powerful and flexible headless CMS. At its core, Strapi runs on Node.js, a popular server-side JavaScript runtime environment known for its high performance and scalability. This allows Strapi to operate quickly and efficiently, especially when handling simultaneous requests.

Strapi is designed to be agnostic for data storage and therefore supports different database systems, including both SQL-based systems (MySQL, PostgreSQL) and NoSQL databases (MongoDB).

API generation in Strapi is a key feature, with the headless CMS automatically creating RESTful and GraphQL APIs from the defined data models. Strapi thus offers enormous flexibility in data querying and manipulation and makes integration into a wide range of front-end frameworks easier. GraphQL in particular enables efficient queries to reduce the network load.

Strapi's architecture is extendable and modular, which is achieved through the use of plugins and support for customised middleware. The AM GmbH development teams can therefore customise and extend Strapi's core functions as required. High IT security is also a key feature with functions for user authentication and authorisation based on modern standards such as OAuth and JWT.

For the user interface and content management, Strapi relies on the React library, which enables a dynamic and reactive user experience. This combination of advanced technologies and flexible architecture principles makes Strapi a powerful tool for modern websites, web portals and e-commerce platforms.

Strapi offers many advantages in development as well as for administration, content management and users. The headless CMS adapts to the respective data models and offers an intuitive WYSIWYG editor. Our development teams can customise the system to the requirements of your company and users, using the JavaScript library React. Strapi acts as a backend for fast and modern platforms developed with frontend web frameworks such as React. It can also be used for single page layouts and static websites.

Strapi is ideal for the modern web development and flexible content management. The Headless CMS is equally suitable for web portals, intranet solutions, e-commerce platforms and websites. The strengths of Strapi lie in its particular flexibility and advanced scalability. This makes Strapi suitable for both small and large projects. The most important topics in detail:

Strapi is more flexible than WordPress

Strapi is known for its exceptional flexibility, especially compared to traditional content management systems such as WordPress. Features that are often only possible in traditional CMS through many additional, paid plugins, Strapi has already integrated with our in-house AM-PageBuilder. It is designed to support almost any type of project you can imagine.

Also flexibility in technology

An outstanding feature of Strapi is the relations function. This makes it easy to create a variety of relationships between different content types using the admin panel. With just a few clicks, users can set up all the required connections for their website. This includes a wide range of relation types (one-way, one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many and polymorphic). This flexibility in data structure is a significant benefit of Strapi compared to traditional CMS solutions.

Strapi is faster than PHP-based CMS

Strapi is characterized by its high speed, which is largely made possible by the use of the modern technology stack with Node.js. This technology makes Strapi significantly faster than conventional CMSs. Drupal, WordPress and other CMS are still based on PHP.

This advantage of Strapi improves the usability of the project as well as the usability for content creators on your pages and the ranking in search engines. Overall, Strapi offers a significant SEO performance boost compared to traditional CMS solutions.

Strapi is cheaper than other Headless CMS

Strapi stands out from other Headless CMS, such as Contentful, due to its more extensive features in the free community version. While other Headless CMS often have a number of limitations in their free versions (limited number of content types, data sets, locales, environments, admin panel roles and user accounts), Strapi has no such limitations.

In addition to the more generous free version, Strapi's paid Enterprise license enables, among other things, extended access to custom roles and more extensive support offerings, which are particularly interesting for larger companies.
