What is the best headless CMS, which can handle bigger file uploads (10mb/file and more), has good API and hopefully JS SDK, has decent pricing, and is user-friendly?

REST or GraphQL. Does not matter.

Not sure if this is specifically what you’re looking for but Contentful is awesome

User experience is great

There are some rate limits, right? After rate limit, they are pretty expensive I think

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

I was doing smth in admin dashboard for few minutes and it also counts towards API calls quota. Thats BS 😊

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

Ah damn yeah that is stupid . Nvm then lol. If you’re trying to store files why not just use S3? It’s dirt cheap

writen by Kyle K

Oh its not only files. I want to have records with props like name, categories, etc. + one or two images attached to it

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

Ah yeah I see. If you’re looking for cheap then I’d suggest planetscale + S3 but there may be a cms that handles it all. Def would cost more though

But that’s not headless cms, but only DB hosting

I mean it can manage your content

writen by Kyle K

I’m still trying to figure out, if Directus is a good choice. I tried it multiple times and smth always fucked up 😊

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

Ah yeah

writen by Kyle K

Planetscale seems like good choice for my next side project to try their DBs

And I love their landing page

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

Yeah I use them for everything. Using them for recache rn (my api caching-as-a-service platform)

Do you know any Benedikt and Matthias Endler?

Sorry for the basic questions but what is an headless CMS?

writen by Tiago Ferreira

Basically it’s just a backend. So you can create and edit your content which is then published via API so you can use it with any fronted

writen by Benedikt

I haven’t used much of headless CMS so far so I can’t recommend any

writen by Benedikt

It’s like a WordPress without frontend website. You just have administration, where you manage your data. Then you create frontend on your own and fetch that data with ready-made API

Have you tested Strapi? <https//strapi.io/> They are pretty popular these days. Friend of mine built a site with that last week.

writen by Matthias Endler

I did. Don’t wanna selfhost

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

Well they have https://strapi.io/cloud for a hosted variant

Waitlist

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

Yeah.

writen by Matthias Endler

Wolfgang Gassler shared https://directus.io/ with me last week. That looks like a data-only platform. Not sure if it helps.

writen by Matthias Endler

Tried Directus few times, but always smth fucked up 😊 Don’t know, if I want to continue. But it’s great tool

writen by Dobroslav Radosavljevič

Hum, I see. Tricky one. Can’t think of any other options tbh. I’d sign up for the Strapi waiting list just in case.

There is also http://sanity.io|sanity.io

I just started playing around with https://www.webiny.com/ , a couple of days ago for one of my projects. It promises a lot but I can’t have a verdict yet. It’s serverless, self-hosted, open source, with headless cms, page builder and file manager on top of s3. Strapi is also a strong option, yes. My client uses it for the whole cms part, but as it the content grows, it can become hard to manage and huge build times.

So is it like a DB with an interface?

writen by Tiago Ferreira

Tiago Ferreira Also abstracts away a lot of the things you would normally have to worry about with a db. No need to worry about sql injection or anything like that, or image compression, or anything like that

writen by Kyle K

Also makes it easy to write / manage rich text
