How does it compare to wordpress? If you are constantly adding new content to your website, which do you feel is easier?

The website is statically generated, but using Next JS’s incremental static regeneration we can add content as we wish, and the pages affected will be statically regenerated on the next request. Compared to Wordpress, adding content in Strapi is pretty much the same. You have your admin panel with the models you defined and you can add data easily. If you ask me, I’d never use Wordpress if I have to develop a custom website ever again. If time is of the essence and I could use a template, then it makes sense, but I’d never be calm knowing that the website can be thousand times faster if I just use Next JS.
