This tutorial will build a blog app using Strapi as the CMS and…


If you are working in software development today, you probably know about the major shifts that microservice architectures have brought to our industry. Microservices (and the formerly popular Service Oriented Architectures) advocate splitting a software system into a series of small, encapsulated services, each with its own scope.

The advantage here is that backend engineers can work on small pieces of the application without interfering with unrelated code. Individual services can also be deployed one at a time, making maintenance and upgrades easier to manage.

The biggest challenges in implementing microservices are defining the scope of each service properly (in…

In this post, we will learn how to use three modern and powerful technologies Strapi, Svelte, and Tailwind CSS, to build an elegant and functional todo app. We will use Strapi for our backend, Svelte as our JavaScript framework for building our interface, and Tailwind CSS for styling our App.

Below is a demo of what we will be building with these three technologies.


During the past years, much content popped up all over the Internet about the Design System topic. However, you probably already discovered that building a Design System is not an easy task (especially if you plan to build it on top of an existing product). The biggest companies tend to hire their workforce dedicated to Design Systems regarding the massive amount of work it represents. Design Systems are science to themselves.

What is a design system?

There is no proper definition to explain what a Design System is. It depends on the type of organization you work in. Nevertheless, it improves your product consistency and…


In this guide, you will learn how to replace the default WYSIWYG editor (Draftjs) in Strapi with the TinyMCE editor.

Introduction

This tutorial is heavily based on this guide from the Strapi documentation. The idea here is to create a new field that will be modified to use TinyMCE as its editor, but before we start, there are a few things that we should know:

This means that the value taken from the field could contain HTML tags like: <p>Text</p>, <img src="..." /> and even <table>...</table>. …


In this article, we will learn how to connect Strapi to PostgreSQL. By default Strapi uses the SQLite for content storage and Strapi is not only limited to using SQLite as the database, it can be configured to use other databases like MongoDB, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, etc.

It is often confusing on how to connect a Strapi instance to a Postgres database, a lot of back and forth have always been associated with it, but in this article I will demystify the mystery behind all that. …


Strapi, an open-source Node.js headless CMS, allows users to create products with their favorite tools and frameworks while saving them a lot of time.

For instance, developers can set up Strapi with little or no codes and create web applications with their favorite frameworks.

Since this article will be focusing on Strapi workflow automation, let’s start by understanding workflow automation. Workflow automation leverages self-operating processes using rule-based logic to automate what would’ve been a manual job.

For example, Strapi allows users to consume API from a content type with Get, Post, Delete and Put requests, which is mainly done manually.


Introduction

Software applications need a way to identify users, store user data uniquely and serve these data to the right user at the right time. This process gave rise to authentication and authorization in software development. Almost every application today has an authentication flow and if you look closely, you will notice the similarity in the flow of authentication across different applications.

Some developers handle authentication from scratch because they have time and feel confident enough to carry out the task, others let third party authentication companies like Auth0 handle their authentication for them. …
