Product intro

Grav is a fresh flat-file database which is easy to install. It uses a number of Symfony components and is very fast to get started with.

Open Orchestra is an Open Source CMS built on the full stack framework. For database it uses a MongoDB, a NoSQL store rather than the more typical Relational Databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Main advantages
  • Fast to install and get started with
  • Extensible via Plugins, Skeletons and Themes
  • A fresh codebase, no PHP4 cruft here
  • Full Stack Symfony implementation with focus on code quality
  • NoSQL MongoDB backend allows high performance
  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
Main disvantages

 

  • Limited use cases due to flat-file approach
  • Limited developer base
  • Needs more work to round the edges in real-world use

 

  • Fairly unknown and not widely adopted
  • Quite dependent on the efforts of a single company
  • Documentation not the best (REST API, for example)
