Craft vs Drupal: What are the differences?

What is Craft? A CMS built to do one thing and do it well: manage content. Craft is a content management system (CMS) that’s laser-focused on doing one thing really, really well: managing content.

What is Drupal? Free, Open, Modular CMS written in PHP. Drupal is an open source content management platform powering millions of websites and applications. It’s built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of people around the world.

Craft and Drupal can be primarily classified as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.

Some of the features offered by Craft are:

  • Relations
  • Matrix
  • Assets

On the other hand, Drupal provides the following key features:

  • Categorize with taxonomy, automatically create friendly path urls, create custom lists, associate content with other content on your site, and create smart defaults for content creators
  • Manage content with an easy-to-use web interface. Drupal's flexibility handles countless content types including video, text, blog, podcasts, and polls with robust user management, menu handling, real-time statistics and optional revision control.
  • Users can be assigned one or more roles, and each role can be set up with fine-grained permissions allowing users view and create only what the administrator permits.

"Quick bespoke CMS" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Craft, while over 63 developers mention "Stable, highly functional cms" as the leading cause for choosing Drupal.

MIT, Tesla Motors, and Mint are some of the popular companies that use Drupal, whereas Craft is used by Postmark, UMake, and Rigetti Quantum Computing. Drupal has a broader approval, being mentioned in 685 company stacks & 162 developers stacks; compared to Craft, which is listed in 43 company stacks and 9 developer stacks.

      Reviews of Craft and Drupal
      Review ofDrupalDrupal

      I am not a developer, however Drupal provided me with almost all the modules that i needed to create complex, responsive and fast websites with front-end and proper admin interfaces.

      Most critical part of Drupal is the compression, caching and other performance details in the core, this makes site perform faster just while we get started.

      As the app's CMS and CRM.

      It is being used in a headless state and is completely decoupled from the frontend; only serving it's content to the AngularJS framework via a RESTful API.
