Product intro

Cosmic.js is a CaaS based on GraphQL. It follows on the footsteps of both Contentful and GraphCMS.

Joomla! is one of the big three PHP CMSes. Currently it uses only a single component from the Symfony project. Joomla remains a strong contender with a large number of users and extensions.

Main advantages
  • Excellent usability for editors
  • Developer ergonomics
  • Clear pricing model (no free tier, though)
  • Large developer and user base
  • Plenty of ready made extensions available
  • Tried and tested basic concepts

 

Main disvantages
  • Limited content modeling capability
  • Lack of customisation options
  • Vendor lock in
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
