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.

As a Content Management Framework Symfony CMF is not a complete CMS product, but more of a framework to build your own CMS on top of. This makes it stand out from the crowd.

  • Extensible via Plugins, Skeletons and Themes
  • A fresh codebase, no PHP4 cruft here
  • Full stack Symfony Framework Implementation
  • Flexibility in design alowing tailored experiences
  • Can be embedded into existing Symfony applications
Main disvantages

 

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

 

  • Longer time to market than with CMS
  • Content editor experience easily compromised
  • Smaller community than CMSes
