Using Custom Controllers in Strapi to Power a Next.js App

Strapi continues to be the most popular free, open-source, headless CMS, and, recently, it released v4. Built using Node.js with support for TypeScript, Strapi allows developers to perform CRUD operations using either REST or GraphQL APIs.

The best part of Strapi is that it allows users to customize its behavior, whether for the admin panel or the core business logic of your backend. You can modify its default controllers to include your own logic. For example, you might want to send an email when a new order is created.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to build a messaging app with Strapi on the backend and Next.js on the frontend. For this app, you’ll customize the default controllers to set up your own business logic.
