Drupal vs Statamic: What are the differences?

Developers describe Drupal as "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. On the other hand, Statamic is detailed as "Build simply. The flat file CMS built for developers and clients alike". Statamic 2 is now built on Laravel and sporting a brand new Vue.js-powered control panel. As a developer you can build, configure, and manage everything right in your code editor. As a client or content manager you never have to leave the c.

Drupal and Statamic belong to "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Drupal are:

  • Bring Your Own HTML

    Reviews of Drupal and Statamic
    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.
