Drupal vs Symphony CMS: What are the differences?
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; Symphony CMS: XSLT-powered open source content management system. It is a beautifully minimal PHP+MySQL-based open source content management system that uses XML and XSLT as its backbone. On the surface, it is similar in function to ExpressionEngine, Textpattern, WordPress, or Drupal.
Drupal and Symphony CMS can be primarily classified as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.
Some of the features offered by Drupal are:
- 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.
On the other hand, Symphony CMS provides the following key features:
- Approaches content management with the underlying goals of simplicity and openness
- Gives designers and developers complete control over data structures, URL schemas, and every bit of markup
- Puts the Web's most exciting APIs at your fingertips with an easy-to-use, XML-centric data engine
