The Craft CMS is flexible, intuitive, and tailored for unique content needs

What is the Craft CMS?

Craft CMS is a flexible, user-centric content management system that excels in providing a tailored content creation experience. It's known for its intuitive control panel, robust features, and focus on delivering high-quality digital experiences.

Craft CMS is developed by Pixel & Tonic, a software development company based in the United States. Founded by Brandon Kelly, Pixel & Tonic specializes in web development tools and solutions. The company actively develops and updates Craft CMS, providing new features and addressing user feedback. Pixel & Tonic's development of Craft CMS emphasizes functionality and user experience, catering to web developers and content creators globally. The company's involvement in the CMS market is marked by its focus on delivering a reliable and adaptable product.

Strengths

  • Highly Customizable: Offers extensive customization options for developers to tailor the CMS to specific needs.
  • User-Friendly Content Management: Intuitive and streamlined interface for content editors.
  • Powerful Templating: Utilizes Twig templating language for flexible and powerful template creation.

Weaknesses

  • Cost: Being a premium CMS, it comes with licensing costs that may be a barrier for some users.
  • Learning Curve: Requires some time to learn, especially for those not familiar with Twig or its structure.
  • Plugin Dependency: Relies on plugins for some common functionalities which might affect performance and maintenance.
  • Relatively difficult and expensive to add custom code and this increases exponentially as you start delving deeper into the code and database structures. 

Why we like it

We like the Craft CMS because of its power templating language. We also like that there is a strong support from its creators. Also, having a way to build out the entire data schema in the CMS is fast and easy.
