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.

WordPress is not a very modern PHP CMS and does not use Symfony or other components. It is very popular and earns it's position in the listing of Symfony CMSes.

Main advantages
  • Everything included
  • Relatively modern architecture
  • Easy to get started
  • Very popular
  • Good usability
  • Vibrant community
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
  • Shoddy code quality
  • Relies on 3rd party plugins a lot
  • A weak security trackrecord, partly due to plugins
