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.

As a Content Management Framework Symfony CMF is not a complete CMS product, but more of a framework to build your own CMS on top of. This makes it stand out from the crowd.

Main advantages

  • Standard components for Forms and Database
  • Clean purpose, not trying to solve every problem
  • Full stack Symfony Framework Implementation
  • Flexibility in design alowing tailored experiences
  • Can be embedded into existing Symfony applications
Main disvantages
  • Developer availability compared to WP
  • Extensibility for multilingual, etc. depends on extensions
  • Limited community size
  • Longer time to market than with CMS
  • Content editor experience easily compromised
  • Smaller community than CMSes
