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.

Kunstmaan Agency has created a number of Symfony2 Framework Bundles to enable developers to create web applications with CMS features. It's not a complete product in itself, but offers flexibility for skilled developers to create easy to use site experiences for content creators.

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
  • Flexible, choose only what you need and adjust to your needs
  • Uses standard Symfony Framework structure and development practises
  • Can be integrated into existing Symfony2 applications
Main disvantages
  • Developer availability compared to WP
  • Extensibility for multilingual, etc. depends on extensions
  • Limited community size
  • Limited adoption outside of Kunstmaan
  • A bit hard to purchase, because it's a collection of components rather than a complete product
  • Future roadmap a questionmark
