Product intro

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.

PyroCMS 3 is a major rewrite of the PHP Content Management system. It is built on the Laravel Framework, which in turn uses many Symfony components at it's core.

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

 

  • Built on a common framework
  • Clean code and modern architecture
  • Superb administration interface
Main disvantages
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new

 

  • Limited adoption a possible liability
  • Tight coupling to Laravel Framework limits options
  • Multisite and some other commonly needed features missing
