Some of the features offered by Drupal are:

  • 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.

          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.
