I made several PHP websites with prismic.io, I enjoyed the flexibility of custom content types, content components that can be reused to compose a layout, simple docs and reactive dev support. Finally, editors are all happy with the backend UI, the ability to preview from the backend or edit content from the website ; and they feel safe with the changes history and ability to rollback to any version of a content piece.
The Ghost CMS is built on Node.js and provides the means to post new content (articles) to the site. As I have little time to actually spend on broadcasting my thoughts to the blogosphere, this doesn't see much use.
Ghost powers our blog (surprisingly)
