How do we ensure quality in CMS development?
Content Management Systems have been around for decades, with first software of this kind making debuts in late 80ies. That’s because not only do they make it easier to manage content, but for non-technical users, they make it… possible. Today, over 70 percent of all websites are powered by a CMS.
CMS development has many faces. There are many PHP-based CMSes – Wordpress alone has a market share of over 60%. In the past years, decoupled and headless CMSes have been making strides, making CMS independent from the frontend layer. This approach is often used for enterprise-level and custom-made CMSes created to address sophisticated content needs.

CMSes can be divided into many types also by their stated objective. Some simple CMSes make for great news and blogging websites. To manage more types of content, you need more robust systems such as Drupal or proprietary enterprise-level solution. Another way is to create a whole new custom CMS system from scratch.
Headless CMSes are a modern variety of content management systems. They purposely lack presentation layer, so that publishers can save the content they store to various different channels, such as websites, mobile apps, data feeds, social media and more. The system is reactive, meaning it doesn’t serve content on its own – one retrieves it via API.
The Software House has many developers across the board interested in developing modern and efficient content management systems. Our interest in this area also includes contribution to a popular open-source PHP & Symfony-based CMS called Bolt. We will help you pick a solution best tailored to your current and long-term business objectives.

Open Source, CMS
Modern CMS to serve both users and developers
Searching for a viable open-source CMS that could be utilized for our clients’ needs in a variety of scenarios, we analyzed many potential alternative. Eventually, we picked Bolt – a PHP CMS advertised as one, which caters to the needs of both everyday users and developers.While it was quite outdated and far from perfect at the time, we believed it had a fantastic potential. To make it better, both for the open-source community and our own development purposes, we contributed to its development. Over time, it has started to become what we wanted it to be. Our work on Bolt was also a great way for many of our developers to learn more about CMS development.
