Product intro

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.

Joomla! is one of the big three PHP CMSes. Currently it uses only a single component from the Symfony project. Joomla remains a strong contender with a large number of users and extensions.

Main advantages
  • Low learning curve
  • High performance
  • Unparalled security with static HTML
  • Large developer and user base
  • Plenty of ready made extensions available
  • Tried and tested basic concepts

 

Main disvantages
  • Limitations when working with dynamic data
  • Limited userbase
  • Lack of basic functions people expect from a CMS (feedback forms, etc.)
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
