The symfony blog has posted a look at a common problem developers face when working up content-heavy sites - which is the way to go, a CMS or an application in a framework?
Like us, you probably met this case several times: A client has to choose a tool for his website, which is a mix of content managed in the backend, and specific features in the frontend. The choice is between an open-source CMS and an open-source framework.
There's talk of advantages and disadvantages for both and, finally, a common solution that combines the two - a CMS created in symfony. Fortunately, some developers saw ahead enough to create one in the form of a symfony plugin - sfSimpleCMSPlugin (screenshot).
