Review ofprismic.ioprismic.io

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.

Wordpress is extremely easy to learn and implement. Although is it not as sexy for devs to work with it is by far the most cost effective way to get a dynamic website up and running with very little debugging.

It's great for: * Landing pages * Private Social Networks * Blogs - obviously ;) * News Networks * Member sites * Multilingual content
