How would I start in order to build a website, that is functional like the famous S-Town Podcast? Is this done in HTML5? Or is there a CMS behind it like Wordpress or similar? thanks in advance!

  • Cloudways - Managed Cloud Hosting Platform
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • Twig

    Twig, the flexible, fast, and secure template language for PHP

    For your requirements, if i was creating JUST the https://stownpodcast.org/ site I would use Symfony. That way you can use things like Twig but only really pull in components you need/want. If you want to have a nice back end to manage the content, then by all means use Drupal or Wordpress, but IMO it's too much overhead unless you have a team of non-technical users who need to manage it. The majority of the work here is going to be recreating that theme.

  • Symfony

    The Symfony PHP framework
