Logo
Product intro

Contenta is a Drupal 8 distribution that aims to provide a headless, decoupled shell for Drupal 8.

Drupal 8 is a partial modernisation of the legacy Drupal CMS with a few parts of Symfony under the hood. Usability improvements were not the focus and to the end user Drupal 8 is very much like Drupal 7.

Main advantages
  • Open Source
  • Built on a solid Drupal 8 foundation
  • Fully customisable
  • Based on stable legacy with critical APIs in place
  • A large number of ready made modules (for Drupal 7)
  • Large mass of developers brings stability for purchasers
Main disvantages
  • Dependence on other projects
  • Hosting complexity
  • Limited templating capability
  • A custom architecture based on Symfony Components, proprietary module structure
  • Usability of admin interface not very good and remains tightly coupled to Drupal
  • Suspect to security issues due to custom implementation and popularity (see Drupalgeddon)
