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.

WordPress is not a very modern PHP CMS and does not use Symfony or other components. It is very popular and earns it's position in the listing of Symfony CMSes.

  • Good usability
  • Vibrant community
Main disvantages

 

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

 

  • Shoddy code quality
  • Relies on 3rd party plugins a lot
  • A weak security trackrecord, partly due to plugins
