I just wanted to try bouncing this idea around to see if anyone has tried this or not, and see if it might work.
I’ve a couple of custom services to insert into Strapi which are essentially going straight to Mongoose. Which makes me think this might be possible.
Essentially I’d like to try and run a website. owered by the Strapi database super cheaply, serverless for example would fit perfectly as I’d get a lot of free invocations on AWS for example. I’m wondering is there anything that would get in the way of me using the CMS admin panel locally (or on a stand-up/teardown basis) and instead hit the Strapi database directly via Mongoose from some Lambdas? Most of my operations are read only so feels like this might be achievable?
The main area I can see as being a problem is writing a user. As I use the users entry in Strapi, but don’t really intend for anyone to use this for API access. Everything else is a custom content type.
Anyone any thoughts?
