Product intro

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.

Joomla! is one of the big three PHP CMSes. Currently it uses only a single component from the Symfony project. Joomla remains a strong contender with a large number of users and extensions.

Main advantages
  • 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
  • Large developer and user base
  • Plenty of ready made extensions available
  • Tried and tested basic concepts

 

Main disvantages
  • 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
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
