Product intro

Symphony CMS is a content management system that is built using PHP language. Despite the similarity in naming it has nothing to do with the Symfony project also written in PHP.

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.

Main advantages
  • Simple to read codebase
  • Easy user interface
  • Extensible by default
  • Full Stack Symfony implementation with focus on code quality
  • NoSQL MongoDB backend allows high performance
  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
Main disvantages
  • Codebase shows it's age
  • Heavy investment in project specific technology
  • Limited popularity
  • Fairly unknown and not widely adopted
  • Quite dependent on the efforts of a single company
  • Documentation not the best (REST API, for example)
