Craft vs WordPress: What are the differences?

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; WordPress: A semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.

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

Some of the features offered by Craft are:

  • Relations
  • Matrix
  • Assets

    Review ofWordPressWordPress

    Wordpress is extremely easy to learn and implement. Although is it not as sexy for devs to work with it is by far the most cost effective way to get a dynamic website up and running with very little debugging.

    It's great for: * Landing pages * Private Social Networks * Blogs - obviously ;) * News Networks * Member sites * Multilingual content

    Wordpress is used for our blog and some of our content & landing pages, runs on a subdomain. We also use a custom Python proxy to bring in blog content to the primary domain (/blog).
