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.

Spress is a static site generator built with Symfony Components. The tool is versatile and uses familiar technologies such as Twig, Markdown and the Symfony console.

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
  • Low learning curve
  • High performance
  • Unparalled security with static HTML
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)
  • Limitations when working with dynamic data
  • Limited userbase
  • Lack of basic functions people expect from a CMS (feedback forms, etc.)
