Joomla! vs Pagekit: What are the differences?

Developers describe Joomla! as "A content management system helping both novice users and expert developers to create powerful websites and applications". Joomla is a simple and powerful web server application and it requires a server with PHP and either MySQL, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server to run it. On the other hand, Pagekit is detailed as "A modular and lightweight CMS built with Symfony components". Pagekit gives you the tools to create beautiful websites. No matter if it's a simple blog, your company's website or a web service. Pagekit has a modular and extendable architecture and is built on top of Symfony components and modern open source libraries.

Joomla! and Pagekit can be categorized as "Self-Hosted Blogging / CMS" tools.

Some of the features offered by Joomla! are:

  • User Management
  • Media Manager
  • Language Manager

On the other hand, Pagekit provides the following key features:

  • Responsive Design
  • Blog
  • Users & Permissions

"Powerful extension architecture " is the top reason why over 14 developers like Joomla!, while over 5 developers mention "Intuitive ui" as the leading cause for choosing Pagekit.

Joomla! and Pagekit are both open source tools. Pagekit with 5.15K GitHub stars and 608 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Joomla! with 3.29K GitHub stars and 2.88K GitHub forks.

Decisions about Joomla! and Pagekit

10 Years ago I have started to check more about the online sphere and I have decided to make a website. There were a few CMS available at that time like WordPress or Joomla that you can use to have your website. At that point, I have decided to use WordPress as it was the easiest and I am glad I have made a good decision. Now WordPress is the most used CMS. Later I have created also a site about WordPress: https://www.wpdoze.com
