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.

  • Limited adoption a possible liability
  • Tight coupling to Laravel Framework limits options
  • Multisite and some other commonly needed features missing
