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.

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
  • Everything included
  • Relatively modern architecture
  • Easy to get started
  • Large developer and user base
  • Plenty of ready made extensions available
  • Tried and tested basic concepts

 

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
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
