Pimcore is a CMS whose development started in 2009. Originally the Content Management System was built on the Zend PHP Framework, but the system will switch to the Symfony full stack framework.

As a Content Management Framework Symfony CMF is not a complete CMS product, but more of a framework to build your own CMS on top of. This makes it stand out from the crowd.

  • Longer time to market than with CMS
  • Content editor experience easily compromised
  • Smaller community than CMSes
