    Project mention: Why WordPress is an utter load of crap to build a serious business website with | | 2021-11-23

    I've used OctoberCMS[1] for a smaller project, and this looks similar on first glance. (Might just be the Lavarel underpinnings.)

    What I really like about October is the ability to quickly spin up small CRUD database functionality (index + detail pages and simple backend updates for "custom" objects like staff members, white papers, etc.) using their Builder plugin. Any idea if Statamic offers something similar without diving into custom code?

    However, October seems to be a little stagnant: you search, and most of the forum discussions are from 2016, and many plugins are no longer maintained well.
