Pagekit Drupal 8
Logo
Product intro

Pagekit is a modern implementation of a CMS that uses the Vue.js JavaScript library for it's backend.

Drupal 8 is a partial modernisation of the legacy Drupal CMS with a few parts of Symfony under the hood. Usability improvements were not the focus and to the end user Drupal 8 is very much like Drupal 7.

Main advantages
  • A modern and fresh feel
  • A built in extension market
  • Enthusiastic community
  • Based on stable legacy with critical APIs in place
  • A large number of ready made modules (for Drupal 7)
  • Large mass of developers brings stability for purchasers
Main disvantages
  • A custom architecture using Symfony components
  • UI layer dependent on a single front end technology
  • Limited adoption
  • A custom architecture based on Symfony Components, proprietary module structure
  • Usability of admin interface not very good and remains tightly coupled to Drupal
  • Suspect to security issues due to custom implementation and popularity (see Drupalgeddon)
