WordPress vs Craft CMS?


(Leo) #1

Hey there!

Just came to know about CraftCMS. Any thoughts on WP and Craft, and if WP can take ideas from CraftCMS? Also, since CraftCMS is coming out with their ecommerce module (hello WooCommerce!), what’s your thoughts on CraftCMS &/or WP’s future?

Hey Leo,

This was recently asked on Craft CMS’s Stack Exchange site, and received a couple of extremely helpful responses, from people who do actively use both (and like) both platforms: http://craftcms.stackexchange.com/a/11417/9

Hope that helps!

Different platforms with different goals in mind.

I’m just starting to learn my way around Craft. So far I’m really appreciating the open-ended approach of how it’s been designed. I think it’s a great middle ground between WordPress and Drupal, defining custom content types and making few assumptions out-of-the-box.

On the other hand, I know that I can get a website up and running much faster on WordPress, thanks to the themes and plugins that are available.

So in the end… which one is better depends on the type of project I’m working on. :smile:
