Product intro

Thunder is a Drupal 8 distribution specialised for media houses. It is initially developed by Burda, a German media company, who is now seeking to get other members on the project.

Bolt CMS is a lightweight CMS built with the Silex Microframework. It is well built and a great alternative for developers looking for a modern PHP system to replace WordPress, for example.

Main advantages
  • Everything included
  • Relatively modern architecture
  • Easy to get started
  • Clean architecture built with Silex, very easy to learn
  • Standard components for Forms and Database
  • Clean purpose, not trying to solve every problem
Main disvantages
  • Coupling on pre-packaged product
  • One size fits all - a lot of choices have been made
  • Unsure future with being a new distribution
  • Developer availability compared to WP
  • Extensibility for multilingual, etc. depends on extensions
  • Limited community size
