About this book

Strapi is a Node.js-based, flexible, open source headless CMS with an admin panel. It saves API development time through an integrated admin panel that anyone can use. APIs built with Strapi can be consumed using REST or GraphQL from any client.

This book will help JavaScript developers to put their knowledge to work by guiding them through building powerful backend APIs. You'll see how to effortlessly create content structures that can be customized according to your needs, and gain insights into how to write, edit, and manage your content seamlessly with Strapi. As you progress through the chapters, you'll explore Strapi and its wide range of features, as well as understand how to add complex features to the API such as user authentication, data sorting, and pagination. Finally, you'll learn how to deploy the API to Heroku and AWS.

By the end of this book, you'll be able to build powerful, scalable, and secure APIs using Strapi.
