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.

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
  • 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
  • Built on a common framework
  • Clean code and modern architecture
  • Superb administration interface
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 a possible liability
  • Tight coupling to Laravel Framework limits options
  • Multisite and some other commonly needed features missing
