Product intro

Craft CMS is a new player in the PHP CMS field. It does not use Symfony components, but is a popular and more modern option for WordPress.

Open Orchestra is an Open Source CMS built on the full stack framework. For database it uses a MongoDB, a NoSQL store rather than the more typical Relational Databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Main advantages
  • Superb usability
  • Focus on content management
  • Clean code base
  • Full Stack Symfony implementation with focus on code quality
  • NoSQL MongoDB backend allows high performance
  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
Main disvantages
  • Limited adoption
  • Not a part of a larger ecosystem (like Symfony)
  • Coding style is a bit old school PHP
  • Fairly unknown and not widely adopted
  • Quite dependent on the efforts of a single company
  • Documentation not the best (REST API, for example)
