Drupal 8 eZ Platform
Logo
Product intro

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.

eZ Platform is a CMS built on the Symfony Framework. It is powerful and a total rewrite of the eZ Publish system in development from 1999.

Main advantages
  • 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
  • A full implementation on the Symfony Full Stack Framework
  • Fully featured out of the box, media library, multilingual, multisite...
  • Integrated Solr powered search ensures scalability
Main disvantages
  • 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)
  • Limited number of ready made extensions
  • Some bugs in the UI layer in the first version
  • Learning curve for "old school" PHP developers without OOP experience
