Drupal is a very popular content management system that allows you to create powerful and easily customizable websites, blogs, news platforms, government system or web applications. It saw the light of day in 2001 and has since become open source, a free project, developed and supported by a large community of developers from around the world.
Drupal - a powerful framework and CMS for building flexible projects
In 2015 Drupal underwent a real revolution with its integration with Symphony, thanks to which it now combines the functions of a framework and a content management system, which strongly distinguishes it from WordPress and other CMSs. As a result, it allows you to build different types of projects with many possibilities to configure and modify their appearance and functionality. It is built with modules that allow you to create, for example, a photo gallery section, a banner section or a news section, and has a very extensive library of plugins that greatly expand its capabilities. What's more, Drupal has not only been rebuilt with Symphony components after the 2015 update, but it also has an extensive API, which means you can use it only on the backend side, and use other technologies on the frontend. Equally important is the fact that it is a CMS that is highly resistant to hacker attacks and heavily oriented towards SEO of sites and applications built on it. Nonetheless, Drupal is much more advanced software than WordPress and requires a fair amount of programming knowledge. Additionally, its installation is a much more difficult and time-consuming task. In turn, its very extensive capabilities make it more expensive to implement and maintain than WP.
