🐰 Introduction

Directus is a real-time API and App dashboard for managing SQL database content.

  • Free & open-source. No artificial limitations, vendor lock-in, or hidden pricing.
  • REST & GraphQL API. Instantly adds a blazingly fast Node.js API layer to your database.
  • Manage pure SQL. Works with existing SQL databases, or helps build new architectures from scratch.
  • Choose your database. Supports PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQLite, OracleDB, MariaDB and MS-SQL.
  • Allows self-hosting. Choose your hosting and infrastructure, run locally, or deeply integrate on-premises.
  • Completely extensible. Built to white-label, it is easy to customize our modular platform.
  • A modern dashboard. A Vue.js Admin App so safe and intuitive, non-technical users require no training.
