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.

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.

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
  • Very popular
  • Good usability
  • Vibrant community
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)
  • Shoddy code quality
  • Relies on 3rd party plugins a lot
  • A weak security trackrecord, partly due to plugins
