Ghost vs Symphony CMS: What are the differences?
Developers describe Ghost as "Just a blogging platform". Ghost is a platform dedicated to one thing: Publishing. It's beautifully designed, completely customisable and completely Open Source. Ghost allows you to write and publish your own blog, giving you the tools to make it easy and even fun to do. On the other hand, Symphony CMS is detailed as "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.
Ghost and Symphony CMS can be primarily classified as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.
Ghost is an open source tool with 30.7K GitHub stars and 6.67K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Ghost's open source repository on GitHub.
