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.

WordPress is not a very modern PHP CMS and does not use Symfony or other components. It is very popular and earns it's position in the listing of Symfony CMSes.

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
  • Very popular
  • Good usability
  • Vibrant community
Main disvantages
  • Developer availability compared to WP
  • Extensibility for multilingual, etc. depends on extensions
  • Limited community size
  • Shoddy code quality
  • Relies on 3rd party plugins a lot
  • A weak security trackrecord, partly due to plugins
