Product intro

Bolt CMS is a lightweight CMS built with the Silex Microframework. It is well built and a great alternative for developers looking for a modern PHP system to replace WordPress, for example.

eZ Platform is a CMS built on the Symfony Framework. It is powerful and a total rewrite of the eZ Publish system in development from 1999.

Main advantages
  • Clean architecture built with Silex, very easy to learn
  • Standard components for Forms and Database
  • Clean purpose, not trying to solve every problem
  • A full implementation on the Symfony Full Stack Framework
  • Fully featured out of the box, media library, multilingual, multisite...
  • Integrated Solr powered search ensures scalability
Main disvantages
  • Developer availability compared to WP
  • Extensibility for multilingual, etc. depends on extensions
  • Limited community size
  • Limited number of ready made extensions
  • Some bugs in the UI layer in the first version
  • Learning curve for "old school" PHP developers without OOP experience
