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.

  • Flexibility in design alowing tailored experiences
  • Can be embedded into existing Symfony applications

  • Unsure future with being a new distribution
  • Longer time to market than with CMS
  • Content editor experience easily compromised
  • Smaller community than CMSes
