Open Orchestra Cosmic.js
Logo
Product intro

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.

Cosmic.js is a CaaS based on GraphQL. It follows on the footsteps of both Contentful and GraphCMS.

Main advantages
  • Full Stack Symfony implementation with focus on code quality
  • NoSQL MongoDB backend allows high performance
  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
  • Excellent usability for editors
  • Developer ergonomics
  • Clear pricing model (no free tier, though)
Main disvantages
  • Fairly unknown and not widely adopted
  • Quite dependent on the efforts of a single company
  • Documentation not the best (REST API, for example)
  • Limited content modeling capability
  • Lack of customisation options
  • Vendor lock in
