        Reviews of Drupal and ProcessWire
        Review ofProcessWireProcessWire

        This is the best CMS I know – and I tried many. While there are some minor cons, the vast majority of working with ProcessWire is pure joy! There have been countless moments where I was simply amazed at how easy things can be accomplished with ProcessWire! Everything seems possible. And if something is missing, writing your own modules is easy as cake!

        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.

        Built a number of sites and web apps. Rapid development make for happy customers. Crazy development workflows make developers unhappy.
