Product intro

Fork CMS is a new take on PHP CMSes. Built on a contemporary base that is a customised version of the Symfony2 framework, this is a challenger to keep note of.

Bolt CMS is a lightweight CMS built with the Silex Microframework. It is well built and a great alternative for developers looking for a modern PHP system to replace WordPress, for example.

Main advantages
  • A fresh start, no legacy baggage
  • A clean user interface
  • Fully featured for marketing sites
  • Clean architecture built with Silex, very easy to learn
  • Standard components for Forms and Database
  • Clean purpose, not trying to solve every problem
Main disvantages
  • Not a 100% standard Symfony Framework app
  • Limited adoption
  • Public REST APIs not a priority
  • Developer availability compared to WP
  • Extensibility for multilingual, etc. depends on extensions
  • Limited community size
