We exist to fuel the world’s creativity and productivity 
by unleashing the power of content. So we've built the next generation CMS that does exactly that. Across the full lifecycle and the entire stack. It’s open-source. Javascript. Headless. Community first. And free. And will stay that way. Forever.


About Us

In the digital age, content rules.

More people are now involved in creating and distributing content, than ever before. We have all become the media, the media has been marginalized and brands are now broadcasters.
Everyone has a story to tell or something to sell. A need to create and connect, post and publish, showcase and share.
So, say hello to Strapi! We exist to fuel the world’s creativity and productivity by unleashing the power of content.
Beyond a headless CMS, we are building an open composable content platform. Infinite customization capabilities, the largest open-source community, and a broad open ecosystem.

Of course we’ll always align to local legislations if they are more advantageous, but those 16 weeks are the minimum for any Strapi parents.
  • 🍼 Strapi partners with Aparentière, a parenting coaching company to guide, coach or just answer questions from parents… and parents to be.
