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.

PyroCMS 3 is a major rewrite of the PHP Content Management system. It is built on the Laravel Framework, which in turn uses many Symfony components at it's core.

Main advantages
  • Superb usability
  • Focus on content management
  • Clean code base
  • Built on a common framework
  • Clean code and modern architecture
  • Superb administration interface
Main disvantages
  • Limited adoption
  • Not a part of a larger ecosystem (like Symfony)
  • Coding style is a bit old school PHP
  • Limited adoption a possible liability
  • Tight coupling to Laravel Framework limits options
  • Multisite and some other commonly needed features missing
