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.

Kunstmaan Agency has created a number of Symfony2 Framework Bundles to enable developers to create web applications with CMS features. It's not a complete product in itself, but offers flexibility for skilled developers to create easy to use site experiences for content creators.

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
  • Flexible, choose only what you need and adjust to your needs
  • Uses standard Symfony Framework structure and development practises
  • Can be integrated into existing Symfony2 applications
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 adoption outside of Kunstmaan
  • A bit hard to purchase, because it's a collection of components rather than a complete product
  • Future roadmap a questionmark
