Drupal Previous Solutions

Ilias Dimopoulos
Drupal Web Developer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
I have used multiple PHP Frameworks and CMSs like CakePHP, Laravel, Joomla, Wordpress, Magento etc. Just like the difference between frameworks and CMSs, the differences among the products is mainly the purpose. Drupal is not really better or worse than the rest. It is all about the context. The question is 'What do you want the product for?'. Drupal is development oriented. It is a bit heavier to build and maintain than, let's say, Wordpress, but only in the context of websites with little to none specialized functionality. So, the reason for me choosing Drupal over the rest is mainly the context. The projects that I took up needed specialized functionalities while having all functionalities offered by a CMS so, frameworks were out, CMSs were filtered out due to their, as you mention above, scalability, extensibility, orientation towards development. I might still choose e.g. WordPress for a blog-like site etc., but you get the point. View full review »

I used WordPress. I switched because I learned how to code in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP. Drupal made it easier to customize a website by working directly with the API and the code. View full review »
