Pros

I like that Widen is an easy way to find assets. It is helpful for a large company--because everyone knows where to find the assets that they need.
It's works great, the API documentation is good and Widen has given excellent support on it.
Widen is a terrific tool for our global team. We are able to have 24/7 access to all our assets no matter where we are in the world.

Pros

The beautiful design, the excellent community support, ease of deployment. In short, what's not to like.
I love that it is open source and the new version 9 is rewritten in JavaScript instead of PHP, so it is super fast and has modern features, like a GraphQL API.
This is Free and Open Source Software at its best. Directus has a great, well tended community, excellent developers, many options and lots of friendly answers to real questions.

Cons

Sometimes it gives corrupted error. I wished it could have given the corrupt error while I am uploading files.
My biggest complaint is with my own team because I keep having to reset people's passwords for the site because they forget them.
I think the one thing that I struggle with was the update on how to upload images.

Cons

We've pinpointed bad time to start with it. Directus Team just started rolling out v8 where available documentation was for v7.
Second: the lack of documentation for the interfaces or for the detailed use of the JS SDK. Moreover, sometimes I felt overwhelmed by the technical details of the interface.
Debugging errors and custom endpoints is a bit cumbersome, since every change needs to be first deployed to the final staging or production environment.
